Our new home // Odds anyone?

Even the rain-soaked windy roads on our six hour bus ride from Vang Vieng north to Luang Prabang were not enough to dampen our spirits or the scenery along the way: the clinging clouds over lushly forested peaks were truly gorgeous.

In fact, we were so taken that we plopped down a few million Kip for this lovely duplex:

For what it lacks in amenities it makes up on charm and view. Mom/Dad/Melanie, we'll be sending for our things shortly.

Luang Prabang is a quaint little city up in the mountains of northern Laos, located and the junction of the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers.

After checking in to our rather crappy (the kip doesn't go quite as far in LP!) hostel we met up with some of our compatriots from Vang Vieng.

As we searched for a dinner spot whoi did we run into but nonother than Sharon Amick, a friend from the Bay Area we had not seen in a couple of years sitting with her travel companion Warwick. What are the odds?? good enough I suppose :-)
