Luang Prabang - 2014 Oct 11

Late last night I walked thru the maze of outdoor shops. Ate sausage on a stick, a slice of pizza, and ice-cream. I didn't find any party bars, so made it back to the hotel by the midnight curfew.
Up at nine for complimentary breakfast; watched the morning market.
Hiked to the top of Mount Phousi for a panoramic view of Luang Prabang.
Visited Wat Pahouak along the way.
Followed a long path, mixed with a variety of Buddhist statues.
Then a trip to the Grand Palace Museum, pictures weren't allowed inside.
Capped the afternoon off with an hour foot massage and a fruit shake.

Booked a flight to Vientiane,  Laos for tomorrow at 1:45 PM ($112); was going to take a bus, but it's a ten hour trip.

Cruised the Mekong River aboard a banana-boat at sunset - highlight of my weekend ($6).
