laos (lao people's democratic republic) - 2005

Laos surprised me in ways that countries seldom do. Perhaps, I should be more specific since I didn't travel very widely in the country. Luang Prabang definitely surprised me.

However, since it isn't that large a country, its probably safe to extend some impressions: the Lao people are gentle and polite, the country hot and humid, and the cuisine pretty fantastic.

Definitely a place I want to go back to.
