... arrived at the base of Phou Sii hill which held up That Phou Sii Stupa just 328 steps away. However, given the increasing humidity this proved to be more gruelling than the climb to the upper cave at Pak Ou caves the previous day. We were all dripping with sweat by the time we made it, but as is often the case, it was worth it for the almost 360 degree view it provided. A small rock jutted out from the top which led to us all having to have pictures taken before Kao ...
... gotten their first book thanks to brother mouse. What a great charity. Apparently the children's favourite Lao book is a fairytale about a witch who eats a girls husband's intestines, don't sound very Disney like to me?! We couldn't afford to make much of a donation but we bought a book for the local children and left a small donation towards a book party. For me, the best part of Luang Probang was the Night market.

He began driving erratically with heavy breaking and ambitious over-taking with sharp turns to try and ...
... off the Tuk Tuk and in the forest it was not far to the falls. On the way there you pass a bear sanctuary. It's actually a rescue program as the bears have been confiscated from poachers by the Laos government. They have 23 in total and all are black Asiatic bears. They are beautiful and it is a shame that poachers still exist in the world. Greed knows no bounds I guess. The bears are usually smuggled out of Laos and live a life of torture in 'Bile farms', horrible.
