Dec 5, 2009 - Slow boat to Luang Prabang

Our journey to Luang Prabang begins this morning at 8:00 when we are picked up in the mini van for the 8 hour drive to Chong Kiang.

Frank, Jen and I took a much-needed rest by taking Sunday off in Candi Dasa, a small seaside village south of Tulamben in East Bali. We stayed at a hotel called Aquaria ..."a calm oasis by the sea". Jen had a great idea to rent a small sailboat so the three of us took off (with the captain) near sunset and sailed around for a bit.
