Not gonna make it to Cambodia...too pricey for me, woulda been an extra $600.00 to fly in and back to where I needed to be. Bo and Kent are flying home out of Ho Chi Minh city so it's on the way for them, it woulda been way out of the way for me. Ted's pickin' me up tomorrow morning and droppin' me off at the boat pier on the Lao border, and then a two day river boat trip down the Mae Khong river to Luang Prabang. Two days there bikin' to the waterfalls and Pak Ou caves, then I'm jumpin' on a small plane (Yikes!) back to Chiang Mai and head up to Mae Hong Son province for more caves, and some river yakkin' at Cave Lodge. (www.cavelodge.com). On to Pai and back up into the mountains. They're really burnin' the rice fields right now so it's kinda smokey in the river valleys. Looks like an LA sunset! When I get to Laos I'll try and find a way to post photos. Everybody's splittin' up at this point to go our seperate ways. Ted and Nattaya to honeymoon in Bali, Bo and Kent to Cambodia, Tom and Carrie to Bali to meet up with Ted and Nat later, and me to Laos. I'm gonna meet up with Ted and Nat in Bangkok on the way home. We've had a great time together, but it's hard to fit seven people in a Tuk Tuk......
