We intended to stay here for three days, but Jim has been recovering from a cold and couldn’t bear to leave this heavenly spot. So, as we do with increasing frequency, we added a day to our stay. It worked wonders for Jim’s ailments.
Later this morning we will head a little northeast to get up into the Bolaven Plateau. There we expect to spend a couple days around coffee plantations, water falls, and considerably cooler weather. We don’t expect to have any Internet access there.
Then we’ll come back down to the Mekong and continue our northward journey up into Central Laos.
