Still in Laos, but have moved to Luang Prabang! A beautiful city with a lot of street food, markets and temples. The city is quite small, and small villages and the forest is really close. I came here yesterday after a quite rough buss ride. It was up and down between mountains, swirling roads and a lot of bumps. But so beautiful! Seem common in Laos.
View from the bus!
Yesterday I just went to the local market, so good! You can buy all kinds of handmade stuff, clothes and whatever you might need. They also have a food market, and the food is really good! Also got one hour massage that costed like nothing. Perfect! Today I met some other girls and we went to see the waterfall quite close to the town. So beautiful!
Climbed all the way to the top and then crossed the river. The forest is like rain forest, and have a lot of beautiful butterflies! By the end of the waterfall we could go for a swim, and they had also a bear rescue center. The bears are almost gone here because people hunt them illegal to sell different parts as "magic" medicine etc.
Tonight I'm gonna go to a place called Utopia with some girls from the guesthouse and also a could of girls that I met on the Halong Bay trip in Vietnam. There's quite a lot of cities most of the backpackers goes to, so you often bump into the same people you've met before. Small world
