About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Luang Prabang, Laos.

We left the Mekong to spend a few days here. Luang Prabang is a city featuring a mixture of former French colonial architecture with a heavily Buddhist culture (33 temples). In 1995 it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, making it my 99th site visited. As I calculate we have four more coming up over the next three weeks.
A stroll through a local food market.
No charge for the extra protein.
Fresher than Subway.
We took an afternoon visit to Kuangsi Falls for a refreshing swim.
I can't imagine even riding my bicycle while holding a umbrella.
They're serious about the World Heritage thing here.

Then a relaxing evening where I was surprised to find an old friend from Africa.
Savannah Dry!

We chill in Luang Prabang today, then move onwards tomorrow with a seven hour bus trip. Plenty of Lao countryside to see. May be doing a bit of bike riding today.
