Location: Laos

MapHello all and Sock Dii Pii Mai Lao (Good Luck for the Lao New Year).

Well I survived Lao New Year although I got thorougly saturated for three days straight!!! The weekend started with a work Basi which was lots of fun. Apparently it is a "tradition" to wear a Hawaian shirt for Pii Mai - not a long tradition i am guessing so we were all given a very loud orange shirt for the event.

The next day I went for a wander around town and visited a number of the temples where I partook in some Buddah washing and got washed myself. The whole city was out and about throwing water at each other and there was a huge party atmosphere in town. This went on for three days, these Lao know how to party!!

I have uploaded some photos for you!

Well I am back in oz on the 28th and can't wait!! So drop me a line if you want to catch up!!
