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.

This is a plantation in Uganda, we saw lots of plantations on our way to Bwindi (which is where we saw the gorillas) Uganda has a lot of plantations, especially for tea.

I love tea, I have a cup of Kenyan tea every day, I loved the Ugandan tea that we had too, but we didn’t find a place to buy any.
