Sauna in the Sauna

Today we took advantage of the beautiful, sunny and somewhat muggy May day by heading to a sauna (for real :-)). Wat Sak Pa Laung is known for its herbal sauna, which Janet hit no fewer than 4 times (jim could only handle it twice).

Our 'guide' Si taught us a few Lao words and we were amusing to the 3 young Laos also enjoying a schvitz. We convinced one to take our pic w/ Si, but it seems that the Laos are not used to tall peeps ;-)

Next we headed to Laos' most important Wat, Pha That Luang, contructed either in the 3rd century BC or 13th, depending on who you believe.
