Laung Prabang - Montezuma Takes Revenge

LAOS | Friday, 14 November 2008 | Views [644]

I had a leisurely day looking around the town of Luang Prabang.  I met up with Pau, who Andy’s Peck’s (friend from Hove) Mother helped in the funding of his house a few years back.  Pau had been a monk for 13 years, but had to give it up to look after his mother.  He showed me around where he lived and the monastery where he used to be a monk.  Very interesting and I appreciated him taking the time out to show me around.

In the afternoon spent a good few hours in a café people watching and reading my book.  A nice way to kill a few hours.

It was Aussie Tim’s birthday today, so we celebrated his birthday in the Lau Lau Gardens,  complete with farmer’s hats purchased the day before, and a cake brought from the local bakery.  It was a great evening, but unfortunately for me, the prawn fried rice I had earlier that day didn’t go down well  and I had to cut the evening short and make a hasty retreat back to the guest house.

I was up all night…..it was bad!!!!
