Luang Prabang and around

Luangprabang is like Hoi An  in Vietnam a UNESCO world heritage cite. Very nicely refurbished houses. One after another. The City has chic restaurants and lokal crafts and arts shops. A very good place to spend christmas.

I even got one christmas present from a friend from Austria. It was a nice paper star. I hung it up at the ceiling in my room. Travel christmas tree right there. Thanks.

In Luang Prabang i made a cooking class. It was the day after christmas eve so i was a bit hung over. But we cooked some delicious food and ate a lot. At the market someone had a feet fetish.

At the cookinglcasses restarant I again met two cyclists of the cycling tour. Of course i immediately told them what happened to me on the way to Luang Prabang and they could not believe i kept on cycling up that last hill. They invited me to join the tours christmas day dinner, which was very nice of them. Again great food.

In one of the villages the local kids had a blast riding downhill with a old bike. It had no air in the tires and the chain was just hanging off but they had a blast!fabi4213-3  fabi4215-3 fabi4218-3 fabi4219-3 fabi4209-3

Since it was my last day in Luang Prabang i took my bike to a bicycle shop and got it cleaned and oiled. Best 6 euros i every spent. Never had a chain that clean before. Sadly i have no pictures of my bike before i had i cleaned. It looked like it was laying on some dusty lao road for ages.
