After 3 travel days it was nice to have a sleep in. About lunchtime we headed for some crepes then decided we needed to do some sightseeing. The rain was falling pretty hard & our umbrella wasn't really cutting it. We have a small umbrella which is pointless trying to share. That results in Jac being undercover & me walking in the rain. We checked out a few travel agencies before finding one we liked, well the price we liked. We booked our next bus journey in 2 days time to Vang Vieng then settled on a half day tour to keep us busy for today. We had 45 mins to go home & get changed & return to the tour office in time to catch a minibus. The rain had stopped & it was pretty warm by the time we were picked up & driven 30 k's to Kuang Si waterfall. The falls are a 3 tier waterfall & probably the number 1 tourist attraction at Luang Prabang. It took us 20 minutes down winding jungle roads before we arrived. We had to pay a nominal admission fee to get into the site which is fine as it gets put back into conservation. On the walk to the falls we stopped at a bear sanctuary that is included in the entry price. The sanctuary houses Asiatic bears that have been mistreated before being rescued & brought to live here. They have lovely big enclosures in the middle of the jungle which seems a perfect place to live out their days. After seeing all we could bear we moved on to the falls. The waters collect in different levels & have a beautiful turquoise blue colour. As a result of these being in SE Asia you could of course swim in them, none of that preservation you see in other countries when a dollar is to be made. We hiked up to the largest fall for photos before returning to the second level to experience the cool of the waters. After a warm day it was refreshing to spend the next hour swimming around. As time went on less & less people remained which created a more tranquil setting. Sitting in the water beside the falls we noticed our feet were getting nipped at. The small fish we could see were biting our feet. Our very own fish spa. After too short a time we returned back to the bus to be driven back to town. On the way we stopped at a small Hmong village where we wandered amongst the huts as the children did their best to sell us things. Their lives were pretty simple & we're guessing the kids don't go to school. At the end of the circuit I hopped back on the bus as Jac was surrounded by the young ones & in her element. Then it was back on the bus to return to Luang Prabang. We showered then did our routine walk through the night market. We then headed to a restaurant for some buffalo burgers before retreating to the cool of the room to see out the evening.
