Luang Prabang at last

Situated on a peninsula at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers, Luang Prabang is undeniably the most charming place in SE Asia.

Luang Prabang is a temple town with French colonial architecture. Delicate-boned Lao people serve you baguettes and French pastries in cafes and the silk market is out of this world…

We went across the river today buying silk with Larry in a small, mud-road village. The finds were spectacular.

Unfortunately, we’re all sick. Two of us have the dreaded you-know-what that keeps you located conveniently near the exit, if you know what I mean. The other of us has a cold and is dripping snot all over the place.
