On The Border

A Wat in Chiang Khong on the Lao border

Sunrise on the Mekong, from my balcony, looking across to Lao

My trusty steed pulled up to the gate of yet another amazing Wat

Spendin' two days here in Chiang Khong before I head down The Mekong into Lao for a week. Rented a mountain bike, and the guy at the guest house says "wait I get you map". Comes back with a hand drawn map of the entire border area complete with descriptions and distance in kilometers. That's how I found the Giant Catfish Museum. Spent the rest of day one ridin' along the river, goin' for a swim, talkin' to the locals about fishin' and travelin' along the river.

Oh, and some local river shrimp and Singha.

Bought a great Thai Silk aloha shirt on the border for 3 bucks, and it's green! Anybody want one? Hope everybody's doin' fine, I'll post from Lao,

I'll take a shirt, ugly as possible. XL...American XL. That's probably XXXL in Laos.
