Laos

There are two ways to get to Luang Prabang, Laos from Hanoi.  Thirty hour bus ride through mountainous terrain, or one hour international flight.  While we most certainly would have chosen the former 15 years ago, time and wisdom (and a little extra cash) steered us to the latter.  We had an uneventful flight over the beautiful and extensive mountains of northern Laos.  We landed to nice, balmy tropical weather.  The boys loved Laos from the moment we exited the plane and walked across the runway.  Our hotel pick-up was in an old Land Rover….they could not possibly have been more excited!  We piled our bags in, crammed into two benches facing each-other in the back, and off we went, scooting past all the nice hotel limos and air conditioned minivans.  Past the luxury digs in town, down a long, bumpy dirt road to our little huts.  We were greeted by the delightful Lao owners, ordered some Lao beers, and watched the boys play soccer with their new Lao friends.  I think we are going to like Laos.
