The bus ride

Luang Prabang

Asiatic bears




Hiking between the waterfalls








My arrival in Luang Prabang after a 6 hour bus trip from Vang Vieng was uneventful and we quickly found a nice guest house. After a bit of a look around the town and a bite to eat, Fran and I decided to have a couple of beers and I got a ham crepe to munch on as well. Bad choice. I spent all day yesterday throwing up and unable to leave my bed, let alone the room. So Day 1 Luang Prabang; wasted.

Day 2 was more successful. I headed out to Tat Kuang Si and the coolness of multiple waterfalls tumbling over limestone formations into a series of heavenly turquoise-green pools. In addition to the Asiatic bears that also have a compound inside the park. Unusual combination? Yes, I thought so. There was supposed to be a tiger as well but I couldn't find it.

Tomorrow Fran and I go our separate ways. I am heading off to do a 2 day Elephant Mahout training course. I can't wait!!
