These pictures were taken at the amazingly beautiful Tat Kuang Si Waterfall, just outside Luang prabang, Laos. The waterfalls are absolutely gorgeous, and, you can swim in any of the pools that are marked for it (there are signs to tell you which pools you can or cannot swim in). The you can find a place in town to set up a visit here, and often the trips are a joint package with some of the other sight seeing stuff in the area. Just outside of the waterfalls there is an area where you can see asiatic black bears (in captivity); this area is a rescue center through Free the Bears. The group rescues bears that were captured for use in traditional medicine. The area is really cool, and the waterfalls are just stunning. Absolutely worth a visit!

Dried chili to be ground into pastes, dried sticky rice, and dried Morning Glory. I don’t know exactly why all of these things need to be dried, but I really liked the way the baskets were just set out on the sidewalks. Luang Prabang is a really pretty little town with a lot of interesting things to offer tourists, and with some really fantastic food!

This picture was taken in Luang Prabang, Laos, at a restaurant on the main street called Khmu. The first dish is fried Mekong seaweed with a chili paste, and the second is stir fried Morning Glory. Both were absolutely delicious, as was the Chicken Susee (not pictured). Khmu is a fantastic restaurant, and if you don’t want to eat from the street food carts, this is a really good alternative. The street food carts are really good too, but this is better for a sit down meal.
