Bamboo bridge over the Makong…they take it down during rainy season due to high water and currents. Costs 5 kip to cross!
in Luang Prabang for 5 days so I can renew my Cambodian visa to end of March. Incredibly beautiful here…beautiful little alleyways and spectacular river views (on a pinninsula where the Mekong meets the Nam Khan River) Some times it reminds me of St. Ives in England.Got up at 5am to see the monks procession on the Main Street….snapped a few discreet shots.Bit touristy and the women selling rice to give away kind of aggressive but still something to see! Yesterday I spent the day at Kuong Si Falls, 40 mins out, and swam in the cold, blue water….so refreshing!Walking 12 to 15 km daily and just had an amazing $10 full body aromatherapy massage. She really worked my feet and felt so good. Many other wonderful and interesting sites!Market fresh kill!
Strong French influence here…architecture reminiscent of New Orleans lots of French tourists and cafes w French pastry, had one too many!Water lily pond at Royal Palace and Museum!
Stairs to Mt. Phousi!
What wonderful pictures Margo! It looks so interesting and European. That’s a surprise to me.
A journey that will leave indelible memories!
