#2 Laos

Wednesday December 16th

We woke up at 7:30 am and got aboard our boat at 8:00 and left at 8:30. We traveled 8 hours from Pakbang to Luang Prabang.

Here is a picture of Pakbang from outside the guesthouse where we spent the night.

A few pictures from as we were leaving Pakbang.

When we arrived, we went out for dinner at the night market and met with our friends from Thailand (Oliver and Adam). Thursday December 17th We had planned to go to visit a tribe today, but due to the rain the excursion would have been too trecharous. So we went around the city and visited a few temples.

Friday December 18th We woke up at 7 and rode with Hung Pen (his nickname is expensive), took a canoe across the Mekong River, and took a tuk tuk to bam som village (20 kilometer). Where we got off and started our hike.

Here is a photo of Hung Pen, our guide.

Us crossing the Mekong for about 5,000 kip (about a dollar).

When we arrived to the village at the bottom of the moutain,We saw some cute puppies and children playing in the street.

The kids would try and hit one another's spinners.
