First evening is Luang Prabang we visited the “evening market” to bargain and make a few small purchases.
Diann joined a few of our traveling comrades to give morning offerings for the Buddhist monks. A daily 0530 routine: monks from the 5 monasteries, walked around town to gather donated food for the day (two meals: breakfast and lunch). Our resort prepared the sticky rice, we contributed a handful of rice to each monk’s pot. Several of them are very young.
The afternoon cruise on the Mekong River: Tom & I boarded the long narrow boat for a peaceful 3 1/2 hour river tour. The “Cave”, containing multiple Buddha statues, was interesting end point up river.
