  • Day 201- Took the VIP minibus aka: cramming 12 people into a 10 person Hyundai minivan with no seatbelts or AC, on the 7.5 hour, harrowing mountain pass roller coaster ride from Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang today. To kill time while I sweated through my underwear and prayed for our lives, I did some Laos research. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ’ป

Hereโ€™s a little info for you:
-
Did you know Laos is the most heavily bombed country (with respect to its population size) in the history of warfare? Itโ€™s unfortunate geography left it stuck in the middle of the Vietnam-U.S. War. โ˜น๏ธ
-
Unexploded Ordinances (UXOs) are still a big problem in Laos even today. Itโ€™s estimated that over 260 million cluster bombs rained down on northern Laos between 1964 and 1973 and that 78 million of them remain unexploded. ๐Ÿ˜ง
-
These UXOs cause injuries/limb loss and death each year as unexploded bombs are found lying dormant in the ground, usually by children or farmers. In a country with poor and inadequate healthcare, these accidents are extremely devastating. ๐Ÿ˜ข

  • Day 200- Some days you just take a shower and some days you *earn* your shower. ๐Ÿ›
Explored the Laos countryside, caves, limestone karsts, and the Blue Lagoon by dune buggy today and brought home a kilo of dirt as a souvenir. ๐Ÿ˜

  • Day 197- We whispered a quiet and respectful โ€œHappy Chinese New Yearโ€ to the giant sleeping Buddha at Pha That Luang. ๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿคซ
-
Pha That Luang (2nd pic) is the most important national monument in all of Laos; a symbol of Buddhist religion and Lao sovereignty. ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ฆ
-
Legend has it that Ashokan missionaries from India erected the stupa here to enclose a piece of Buddha
  • Day 196- Todayโ€™s worldschooling is brought to you by the Temple of Rhythm and Bowl. We fully immersed ourselves in this cultural experience by donning the traditional shoes worn by locals for many decades. We were also taught the intricate differences between BeerLao Lager vs. BeerLao Dark Lager. And seeing that tomorrow is the Lunar New Year, we offered up many strikes and spares as gifts to the gods. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
