B-52 bomb shell casing boat
After talking to another leader when I was in Saigon she said that she had a passenger who had pictures recovered from a memory card that they had deleted. So I asked around and found someone in Saigon that could do it for me. After about an hour with a special program he was able to find my lost pictures.
Here is a better picture of the B-52 bomb shell casing boat that I showed before. This was in central Laos near the Vietnamese border at a home stay that we do on one of the trips.
This picture was taken from our Junk boat on Halong Bay in Vietnam. The rock formations are pretty spectacular.
Sticky Rice is a staple in Laos. It is cooked and served in a wicker basket. It is eaten by rolling it into a small ball (smaller than a golf ball) and then dipped into the food.
Traditional Laos Dips
And this is the type of thing that the sticky rice is dipped into. Doesn't it make you hungry?
In much of Asia they do not have refrigeration so many people dry their food in the sun to preserve it. Along the road in Luang Prabang, Laos I found this buffalo meat out to dry.
And these thin rice cakes also drying in the sun.
I took a cooking class in Laos and here is the result of one lesson. Some of the best Spring Rolls I have had.
One of the reasons I love Asian food so much is that everything is fresh, especially the herbs used in cooking.
In much of SE Asia, and especially in Laos, people take their shoes off before entering a house and many businesses. Most entrances look like this with the shoes sitting outside for their owner to come back out.
This temple is north of Chiang Mai. Very different than all the other temples here that are very colorful.
