I’m still amazed by the laid-back atmosphere of Laos.
Unbelievable is the beauty of Vang Vien, where we stayed 4 days, just sitting at the river admiring the landscape and environment. Nature aplenty, with rice fields, caves, mountains and mud tracks.
The changing light coming over the mountains, the fog, the flowing river, the swarms of bats during sunset which avoid collisions and sudden maneuvers, and maintaining constant situational awareness by flighing smoothly in incredible figures and formations – what a sight!
Vientiane and Luang Prabang are the slowest “towns” I’ve been so far, situated at the mighty Mekong River, but clean and neat and full with the friendliest folks of people. It’s like Thailand just 15 years ago.
