So far we are all loving Laos.  We spent a couple of days in Vientiane in the south of Loas and are now farther north in the smaller town of Luang Prabang.   Tonight we marched in a parade of dragon boat floats lit up with candles.  Lots of fireworks and noise makers going off everywhere.  We also lit a paper lantern that floated up into the air.  Music, chanting, dancing – lots of fun. 

 Some of you may know that my mom (Trudy) is a very avid gardener and flower lover (hi Mom and hi to Oma from Bow).  Vientiane had lots and lots of beautiful flowers growing along the laneways and roadsides.  We’ve taken a few flower snaps with Mom in mind.  I’m sure there will be many more because Luang Prabang is also very flowery.  But for now, here are a selection of our flower snaps:
