Random walk in Luang Prabang

Starting our random walk through the little centre.

Dried orange peels, so delicious!
image
Spaghetti anyone?

Worn down by the blistering heat we sat down for a refreshment at the head of the peninsula where the two rivers meet.

Friendly gecko's everywhere.

Trying to get a photo from the canoe builders unnoticed.

Besides the main temple from an earlier post, there where also plenty smaller ones.

Sitting down along the Mekong rivier with a Beerlao (supposed to be the nicest beer from South East Asia and we have to agree) to watch the sunset.

We were really craving a nice pizza, so we headed to the pizza place that got raving reviews on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately it was a little out of the way, like, one hour walking through shabby back streets and as bonus a large bridge with loose planks here and there (in the pitch black / being blinded by oncoming traffic). In the end we made it, but we were both stressed out. Luckily the pizzas were indeed very good. On our way back we opted for the much shorter route. This however, included a canoe ride across the river in the dark.

Hard to see, but you can see a canoe made from a hollow three. After five minutes waiting at the canoe some guys noticed us.

Sanne not so confident.

We made it to the other side, payed 10000 dong to the guys and were directly back in the tourist area. We strolled back to our guesthouse over the night market, haggling for some souvenirs here and there.
