Goodbye Luang Prabang
This is the view I've been waking up to all week. It's tranquil and so very beautiful. I've always had a soft spot for Luang Prabang. I fell in love with the little town then and am still in love with it now. Although I can't imagine how I survived those months without much internet access!
Service at the hotel might be a little lacking, but it's very earnest and sincere. We should relax a little and follow their way. I forgave every hiccup, even when they gave me the wrong keys to the 2 locks to my room. Be nice here even when complaining and they'll be more inclined to help. Especially when I need their kindness in dragging a bloody heavy yellow box to and fro the front porch without the aid of any trolleys.
At the end of the week, in spite of bruising the bum on a leap over the balcony, breaking my key in the lock to the door of my room; tripping rather badly over a random square pot which poked a hole in my foot and bled for an hour, I'm still feeling rather chirpy.
I found a very sweet isolated spot in the resort for my morning stretches. The cool and crispy morning air and lower temperatures meant a very conducive environment for longer and deeper stretches. This morning's session was just perfect. It's a Saturday and I've very little on my mind. This feels almost like a vacation. :)
