Holding Fire

This photo was taken in a Maasai Village in Kenya, just outside Maasai Mara National Reserve. Maasai Mara is one of my favorite places in the world, it has everything to offer; gorgeous natural landscapes, tons of wild animals, beautiful places to stay, and a wonderful village to visit just outside the park’s gates. The village was really interesting, and all of the people we talked to were very sweet, and they were happy to show us around. This man, along with a younger man, was showing us how they make fires there, it was a very interesting process to watch.

On the Shores of the Mekong

This picture was taken on the river bank of the Mekong in Laos, somewhere outside of Luang Prabang. We came on this spot while riding elephants on a joint elephant ride/ waterfall visit outside of the town we were staying in. Luang Prabang is a beautiful place, and it’s a great central location to stay and visit some of the outlying areas like this. Tours to visit the waterfall, ride elephants, visit the whiskey village, and visit the Cave of a Thousand Buddhas (Pak Ou Caves), can be arranged in the town of Luang Prabang. The Mekong is gorgeous, and there are lots of spots along the banks that offer beautiful views like this one. You can see the Mekong when you’re in town, but you get really nice views like this outside of town, and it’s great to explore and visit some of the outlying areas. I would recommend an elephant ride as a great day trip, I love elephants and it’s definitely an interesting experience to ride them through some of the more jungly areas outside of town.
