Luang Prabang

The ride from Vientiane was quite the adventure. The winding Hwy 13 has seen its fair share of violent attacks in the last few years, although I Imagine that more deaths have occurred by buses with faulty breaks driving of the road, tumbling down the steep mountains. This almost happened to us a few times, but we made it. We are now in Luang Prabang, and this place is amazing.

everything is much more laid back that Thailand. It is very refreshing.

We went to the grand palace…

which is now a museum, and while the museum had plenty of historical information, there was nothing grand about it; it was a very plain (not what you expect from a palace) and a little boring.

it did however have an old Shell station. Every palace needs its own shell sation; I wonder if the monarchy got a discount?
