A photo essay of Luang Prabang, Laos

30 11 2011

This was the amazing view from our hotel. Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of it’s well-preserved colonial architecture and quaintness. It’s nestled in between two rivers and beautiful rolling green hills – an amazing introduction to the rest of Laos (which we hear is equally stunning, but water buffalo and poor village-filled instead of historic wooden house-filled). Laos is definitely on my list of places i’d love to return to! Here’s a longer look at this amazing place…..

Cushions and random items tossed aside at a monestary (I loved the visual texture)

Whitney! These pictures are amazing. You’re going to have to give me some pointers when you get back state side.

I’m also very, very glad to hear you two are doing ok. Phew!!
