Could be that Im just losing my touch Or maybe you think my moustache is too much? Chemical Brothers, Out Of Control
had my first shave today, so no more dirty moustache... ha
in laos, hanging with cool people i met on the 2 day boat ride to Luang Prangbang, where i am now.
boat ride was cool but the seats on the boat sucked.. we stayed overnight at this little town on the side of the river, Pak Beng. was a really cool place, kinda spoiled when we got there by all the guesthouse owners harassing you as soon as you got off the boat... we hadnt even walked up the huge hill yet!
but really, they are such sweet people here. oh and the word for 'thank you very much' is kinda singsong and musical, very cool.
the place we had dinner at at Pak Beng had free rice whiskey with meals. bad idea... its horrible! didnt stop us having a second round of it though. ha oh and weed is offered to you everywhere! reminded me of nimbin...
so now in the world heritage listed Luang Prababg. really beautiful place. hanging with a english bloke, Adam and 2 canadian girls, Heather and Lauren. they all have the same general plan as i do to make our way down to the capital, Vientiane over the course of about a week or so, so we're gonna do that. looking forward to it!
tmro we're getting a bus to Vang Vieng which sounds like a wicked place. will prolly hang there for a while and then hit Vientiane for a coupla days.
i then fly too cambodia on the 20th i think..
alrighty then, we're off to find some lunch. we've hired bikes to see the town for the day, its soooo fun! haha
oh ps YES photos i know, all the net cafes round this part of the world can be nice but have sloooooooow internet so cant difficult to upload stuff... il try my best!
i've decided that now is the time for me to make my first overseas endeavor, and so i am doing a bit of traveling, doing a bit of working, and mostly just doing a bit of everything.
so i leave (or have already left!) Sydney on March 3 for numerous overseas locations: some already planned, many not.
wish me luck!
