|The first day on the boat we made 1 stop at a tiny little village and took photos of some of the cutest children ever. They were amazed when I vido taped them and then showed them the video back. Too Cute.
Mainly I napped (thank you graval) and read because really.. there isn't much else to do! We got to Pakbeng and little boys ran down the sand mountain to carry bags (lazy people used this service-yea child labour)
We spent the night in Pakbeng (electricty for a few hours in the morning and evening.. nothing there). After a nice dinner of Buffalo I updated my journal and headed to bed.
The following morning was another early start on the boat.
That day we stopped at a cave where there are hundreds of buddha statues which.. because it was a quick stop on the way- great, but wasn't exactly mind altering. It was much of the same on the boat- eat, cards, read nap, but it was A LOT cooler (ie actually cold that I required my blankets-thank you air canada).
That afternoon we reached Luang Prabong.
