in luang prabang for 3 days

since i last wrote we spent 2 days on the rather cold windy river after crossing the border into laos. we visited 2 hill villages along the way & got to interact with the locals. we stayed in yet another hill village where there was generator power from 7-10pm only, no hot water, etc. we had to wake up at 6am to go to the local market to get food - saw buffalo, chicken, ducks, birds off all shapes, sizes & colours for sale. we bought banana flowers, pears, buffalo meat, and assorted other veggies, along with eggs to make our lunch on the boat.

arrived in luang prabang last night around 5pm, had our first hot shower in 3 days & dinner at a restaurant along the mekong river. went to the royal palace museum & had a massage (1 hr = $4)this morning, now just wondering around the town looking for cheapest place to get laundry done.

we're at this guest house for 2 more nights, then off again, can't recall where . . .
