Sunset on the Mekong
After spending most of the day at a friend's house, I sat with other friends at a restaurant on the Mekong River. Several of these boats went by - they carry on all the commerce on the western side of the country, where the roads aren't so good. Many tourists like the idea of floating down the Mekong from Louangprabang - thought it can take two days. In any case, the boats make a beautiful silhouette against the sunset.
