    September 28, 2016 in Laos ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Visited Ock Pop Tok and saw beautiful weaving. Purchased a small one as very expensive. Collected a book about the craft also, which is very insightful. Spent the morning session at Big Brother Mouse. It is great, however, very challenging to talk in simple phrases! Learning a lot about Laos and its history. There are three main groups Hmong, Laos and Khmu. Beautiful, friendly people. Ate lunch at Couleur Cafe and up market French influences restaurant! Met the waiter who's name is Dao - he used to walk four hundred kilometres to and from school ever day. Laos have three schools - primary, secondary and high school. Dao is at university to become an English teacher. He is the first in his family to finish school. Spent some time walking along the streets, but it's very hot! Need to find an umbrella and ditch the hats and suncream. Had another foot massage! Indulgent but so good and soooo cheap!Read more
