Oudomxay to Luang Prabang

Aonther scary bus ride

June 1, 2005

The 8:00 AM bus finally took off about 8:35 AM to Luang Prabang. The driver drove way too fast for these mountain roads. Our bus broke down five times. Here is me waiting while they fixed the bus the first time.

We continually picked up and dropped off locals on the way. We even swerved to either hit or miss a snake; in any event the snake was dead, our driver pulled over and one of the crew members brought it back to the bus. It was dinner for someone tonight.

We got to town at 3:00 PM and found a place to eat. After eating Tina found us a room with Western style toilets, a hot shower and screens on the windows. It was very clean and $7 a night.

A couple pictures from our new clean room.
