Simon, Katie and I first drove out to a hilltop temple near the airfield, and then took a beautiful scenic route (well, I think every route to anywhere in Laos is scenic) down to the river, where we found a nice quiet riverside restaurant to stop at for a lemon and mint smoothie. Simon headed back after that, leaving Katie and I to carry on exploring. We went back through town and through a few villages to get to a small but very pretty waterfall where we rested for a while. On the way back we stopped numerous times to admire the sunset
In the evening we bought a few bottles of red wine and took a sawngthaew back to the riverside restaurant we had discovered earlier in the day. It was our last evening together as Mel and Simon are flying to Vientiane tomorrow. I'll be sad to say goodbye to them but I'm sure I'll see them again, and I'm happy to be travelling on to Luang Prabang with Katie.
November 16th - those sunset pictures just turned up on a disc I never even knew I had :-)
