TIIIIMMMMMMYYY!!!

ha! This photo was taken on the Bridge in Pai, THailand. I've titled it TIIIIMMMMMMYYY! after Southpark's wonderful character. I hope you get it!! My friend said I looked like a retard with a helmet, oversized backpack, green shoes, and an icecream cone, and I just started screaming TIIIMMMMYY! and we both died in fits of laughter. I nearly lost my ice cream cone to the river. (apoligies to mentally retarded people...i know, mean.) I had to include the photo here!

ANYWAYS

I caught the 9 o' clock bus to Vang Vieng and said goodbye to the charming Luang Prabang. THe road was mostly paved, but some parts were in bad repair and the bus had to naviagate slowly or risk losing a drivetrain or something. Much of the way we snaked through valleys where the road fell of sharply to one side and wonderous mountainous vistas spread themselves wide open to view. We stopped several times. I thought this picture of piggies and puppies, rooting around the tables of a restaurant was pretty cute:

I took a lot of photos out the windows of the bus. They're not the best, and the powerlines especially liked to get in the way. It's really hard to describe otherwise the unique shape to Laosian mountains.

So Now I've arrived at Vang Vieng, a VERY special little town. But I think I'll have to wait til the NEXT blog to tell you about it, because this particular computer connection is slow, and its going to take a while to get the photo's uploaded. It's a great place to sit back and be really lazy. mmm mmm!!

HOgs and Quishes
