You can see this plant in many Lao gardens. Laotian garden flower of choice. That’s the impression I got.

We saw  a hot airballoon above Vang Vieng. I have never tried a hot air balloon. Mamdhu and I have made a note to get up in the air on one of these.

And we bought cake.

A red ball like sun disappearing behind a mountain. Lovely

“If a person loses ego and tells another of the fact, the person is no longer without an ego” ~ Some thought in my head last night.

Mamdhu’s father and his friend met at college forty eight years ago.
They are still great friends.
Mamdhu’s father took us to meet him today.
Between us we spoke four tongues.
His backyard is a canel.

He took us to his family restaurant.
The restaurant hosted a wedding two nights ago.
