Tubing down the Nam Song
Vang Vieng, Laos
Another quick blog from me (Ants) tonight. We're sitting in the same internet cafe as last night, minus the grasshoppers and geckos, feeling a little sunburnt. Well I feel a bit like a lobster, and Jo is more like a prawn, being the olive skinned one.
Here's a view of the Nam Song..
We spent a day tubing, kayaking and drinking beer on the Nam Song River today. Lots of fun. Then tomorrow we load up Ting Tong and head north up Route 13 to Luang Prabang. Its only 250 km's but full of switchbacks, steep climbs and Hmong rebels just waiting to pounce if the rumours are to be believed. However, the bit we are most concerned about is actually getting out of our guesthouse since its a steep, muddy ascent and the rain over the last few days hasn't made our task easier.
Anyway, hope you like the photos and will write more in Luang Prabang.
