We had a chance to make some toys from bamboo.
It appears I didn’t take a picture of all the various preparations of rice that we got to try and then it appears I just went back to the hotel and packed to leave.
But no, I had, for the third time here, one of my favorite dinners: grilled whole fresh fish. I tried three different restaurants along the riverside with three different preparations and the meal was delicious all three times.
Also I didn’t take pictures of the two people I shared meals with here – the young Japanese student who was my seat mate on the flight over from Chiang Mai, and an interesting woman from England who had for years painted the sets on Dr Who, but I want to make a note of them so I won’t forget. Luang Prabang is the kind of place where you run into people.
And another thing I want to remember was that wave of affection I felt for SE Asia this very night, walking back from dinner, when I thought I might not see these countries again. And then I though, oh, why not?
Goodbye Luang Prabang, it’s been great!
