Surprisingly today I was the one who really did not wanna get up - the bed is so comfy, air-con, duvet = living the dream. I was forced to rise at 9.30am from which we made a quick turn around to be out for breakfast by 10am. The plan was to go and visit one of the French bakeries here - it's got a good write up in the Lonely Planet so we started out on our search for 'Le Banneton' bakery. After working out a route from the map in the Lonely Planet, we headed out in the heat. ...
We had gone to Utopia our first night in Luang Prabang but we wanted to see the popular bar during the day. We went for lunch and relaxed on the patio overlooking the river. I got the "Luang Pra'bangers and mash" which was one of the yummiest things I've had so far. The sausages were local pork and the most delicious sausages I've ever had.

They had much more unique items than the Thailand markets, so many stalls, and less pushy vendors. Not to mention the food! I wish I had an expandable stomach, because there were so many options. The one thing I regret was not buying the $2.50 buffet, where you ...
A bum numbing 7 hour bus journey has landed us in Luang Prabang, a bit further north in Laos. This time I managed to draw the short straw for the trip, getting lumbered with the temporary central seat next to the driver. The engine's transmission meant that the hard seat didn't numb my bum completely by keeping it heated to a steady one hundred degrees. We're here safely though and that's the main thing. And, as far as I can tell, with all my belongings in tact. ...
