Laos – part 2, June 2013

Laos felt like a backpacker's party place, which is great when you are 18. But it distracted us a bit from its beautiful nature and from getting a good picture of its history and the people. Most locals aren't so fond of the heavy drinking and bare-dressed teenagers either. A great way to explore this with temples, karst mountains, waterfalls and butterflies blessed country was by scooter though. We were treated with a delicious free wedding meal, a friendly monk who accompanied us in admiring the waterfalls, and fellow motorcyclists that enjoyed the landscape as much as we did. Also memorable to us is the monotonous bass beat of the Lao traditional music and the typical, but 'same old, same old' dance style. Go to Laos part 1 Go to Laos part 1
