Yes, well here we are in Laos and what a fab place this is. Before I tell you all about the place I must tell you of my scared/brave husband.
So the first option reads Kev's side of the story and the second is my view on how things were.
So we were staying at at guest house which had a huge rottweiler. By day it was in a cage and by evening, unknown to us, it was not. We came home at about 10 pm and were tallking to the boss's brother and asking for some water when suddenly a fierce rottweiler/a happy rottweiler came bounding towards Kev. The rottweiler attacked Kev/playfully jumped up at Kev and he pushed me out of the way/jumped behind me
So here we are in Laos. First we went to Vientiene which we really liked. A city but with style, mainly French style colonial kind of buildings and good old French baguettes which pleased me to no end. We stayed only for one night and got the VIP (not as it sounds) bus to Vang Vieng which was about 4 hours north. This is the activity area of Laos which is based around the Mekhong river. You can go tubing down the river, kayaking, hiking and so on. Guess what we did? Absolutely nothing because Kev hurt his back and nurse Lea/Taylor was massaging like a mad person for 4 days. Well we enjoyed our lazy time anyway but did miss the kayaking. We spent a lot of time watching films in bars and generally eating and drinking really. We met a couple of English - Sarah and Mike who were good company and spent a couple of good nights chating with them. Kev's back was on the mend so we moved onto the next place Luang Probang where we are now. This is one of my favourite places
Anyway, off to Siem Reap - Angkor Wat (Cambodia) on Thursday. Decided to fly - the flashpackers that we are, to miss out 2 14 hour bus journeys. Got to be worth it!
LOve to you all. Miss you heaps. Let us know hopw you are all doing please. Ann and Mick are you getting these emails? Better go and make sure Kev hasn't fallen asleep on the massage table.
