... a small hill - only took about 10 minutes - to watch the sunset over Luang Prabang. The city looks so awesome from above. It's so green and small, just like lots of villages mushed together, and obviously the rivers surrounding it. I climbed back up the hill another day using a different staircase, and came across a 'Buddha's footprint'; these craters in the ground are apparently all over SE Asia.

Now we sit here for 7-8 hours and wait for the next interesting site to come. It's 1200 and ...
Buffalo steak last night was good. Seriously good. Nicely seasoned too, served with mashed potatoes. Along with a couple of Beerlao, I went to bed contented. I was awoken by a rooster doing the normal cock-a-doodle-doo and what must've been either an apprentice rooster or a mentally handicapped rooster who cried more of a pained cock-a-deeee. Both crowed for over half an hour at 4.30 in the morning. 'No,' sighed the Master Rooster. 'It's cock-a-doodle-doo...' 'Cock-a-deeee,' squawked ...
