Thought I’d better post a quick message in case some of you thought I’d become lost in the rugged mountains of Laos. No, I’m just hanging out in Vientiane, after returning from Luang Prabang. We were going to fly to Xiang Khuan province, but there aren’t any flights going that way, so we flew back to Vientiane a few days ago. I’ll make a more complete post when I return to Morocco, so that I can include photos. I have to go back to Bangkok on the 13th instead of the 14th because the train was completely booked by the time I tried to buy a ticket. The Songkran Festival will be in full swing on the 14th, and many people are heading home at that time. I was lucky to get a ticket for the 13th. Like I wrote, I’ll post again, more extensively, when I get back to Morocco on the 17th (or maybe from Bangkok).
