We spent the day yesterday bicycling on the outskirts of Vientiane. We saw some very nice scenery, and we enjoyed smiling and waving at the ever friendly locals as we passed through villages. But the highlight was coming across a Hmong New Year celebration in a village called Nong Song Hong, where everyone was dressed to the hilt.
Amazing!! The clothing is beautiful!
I’ve been in Paris for the past week. It’s beautiful here and the shop windows are all decorated for Christmas. It’s so festive! I’m on my way back to SF today. Sending love!
Paris makes everywhere else in the world seem so … simple. We’ve been there a number of times but never around Christmas, and only once for a week. Truth be told, though, it would be pretty sad for me to complain that we’re not in Paris now…
