Adventures in Asia

River Village Retreat

Greg and I just got back from Meung Ngoi, a small river village in northern Laos. This place is only accessible by boat and therefore has no motor vehicles! What a nice respite from fumes and traffic noise. Although the roosters more than made up for the lack of noise. Did you city peoples know that roosters don’t cock-a-doodle-do just at dawn? They also do it at 11pm, 12am, 1am, 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am, and then finally again at 6, when the sun rises! At night lying in our bungalow we could here the sweet sweet lady who’s guest house we stayed at walking around saying “ssshhhh!” to them. i don’t know that it helped but it was a kind gesture for sure 🙂

Some photo highlights!

Greg and I have to go hop on the nightbus now to Vientiane (Lao capitol).  We’ll post more pics soon.

Shout out to our hiking and spelunking partnerns, Matt, Anika, & Ulf.    Happy Travels.

Goodnight,

Francie
