What better way is there to start a new country? Try a boat ride on the Mekong River in Laos, towards the city Luang Prabang.


Here is our vessel for the peaceful two day journey.

It is very cozy for just nine guests.

We made a few stops to visit villages on the river. They tried selling us goods (but not being pushy).

We spent one night in the small village of Pakbeng.

That is where we stayed!

Food market in Pakbeng.

Yes, that's roasted rat on a stick. No I didn't try it.

Goodbye to my new friends from Austria, England, Ireland, and the Netherlands.
