View from the porch of my cabin in Luang Prabang, Laos with my laptop in the foreground. This was a wonderful place to work.

The water really is that color blue. See more photos of my visit to the Kuang Si Waterfalls in Laos.

It was a village on the way from Luang Prabang to the beautiful Kuang Si waterfall. It is a bit disheartening to see how the village puts out the children to encourage the tourists to buy.
But the kids seem like they are mainly having fun and the truth is it is likely about the best way, right now, for them to bring in a bit of extra cash. It is far from perfect but I thought it was a nice stop and something that benefits the village more than it hurts it. Figuring out way to have local populations benefit from tourists is very important to raising standards of living in a sustainable way.
They had various handicrafts for sale and some food.
I spotted this in Luang Prabang, Laos. I couldn’t really understand why.
A few days later I visited the night market which is along this street and they string up electricity for all the vendors. That still doesn’t exactly explain why someone decided to mount an electrical outlet box on a tree trunk but I do believe it was put there in support of the electrical needs for the night market.
