    Wow, the look in the betterhalfs eyes in some of those zipline pics reveals a bit of a wild streak.. I'll bet I wouldn't want to get caught crossing her in a card game.

    All joking aside it looks as though it was a "memorable passage." We missed that plane for the jars on the last round. Kinda gives a reason for a future visit. I've more reasurch to do on Pak Ou caves. That is on a wish list of the fishes. Cheers BLD and family and thanks for the tour.

    300 000 kip gets you a boat to yourself for a 1 hour 30 trip up river to pak ou caves, The boats can fit 10 or 12 people so the more in your group the cheaper it is



    Its quite a relaxing way to see life on the Mekong





    Our boat was running low on gas, no problem. just pull in to this floating service station

    These caves have been used for centuries as a repository for old buddha images than can no longer be venerated on an alter because they are damaged

    I wasnt expecting much but it turned out to be a very nice place






    Couple of local beauties were admiring the moobs,




    Where are the tourists?
