LAOS - NEW TO THE MARKET
TRAILFINDERS organized an 11 day trip to Laos, an up-and-coming most charming country.
For the first time, I arrived with a proper camera, a Canon PowerShot, still in the box and lost the recharger. I pestered everybody with unplanned stops to take pictures. I needed to get my money worth of that camera.
MY MAGIC MOMENT
Going up the Mekong River to spend time the tribe children
Luang Prabangang, the former historic capital, is extremely pleased with its PhouSi Hill overlooking the river and its valley. Over 300 steps will bring you to the top where the whole town meets to view the sunset. Watch your bag. Toilets at the top.
A boat ride on the Mekong river, bring a blanket, brought us to the Pak Ou Caves and to the tiny tribal village, for an overnight in the Khamu Lodge,, surrounded by paddy fields. Having given generously to the local school the children decided to light a bonfire, play music and dance for us. What a surprise thank you.
