Our last day in Pai was so cool, still went to see a Chinese village and a beautiful waterfall. Then we had to give back the bikes, said goodbye to Jens who went back to Sweden. And then Dan and I went back to the Happy House where Frits was buying us rum and coke, then took us for dinner and walked us to the bus. Such a great guy! Btw in between I met the Thai version of Jack Sparrow, actually he was really a look-a-like:D He said there have been too many tsunamis lately which is not cool, so he came to chill in Pai. Can't blame the man!
We crossed the border the next morning, met 2 German friends of Dan's (Johannes and Chris) and went for the slowboats. The ride itself was a disappoinment. The boat was really pretty old wooden boat but it was packed with these kind of bus seats and it was all tourists. Not relaxing at all, no space to chill on the deck! We spend a night in some village on the way, went to have dinner in a place that offered free whiskey. It was so nasty. So nasty. And clear in colour. And the 4 of us finished one bottle (what's with this selfdestructive behaviour?). Also on the boat, they sold like tea or water for 5000 kip (about 50cent) and whiskey for 500 kip, ten times less! This is a crazy country indeed.
We arrived in Luang Prabang the next evening. It's a very beautiful, chilled city. I love the nightmarket. Even if it's for tourists, there's no crap. Everything they have is very beautiful. And of course they have lots of liqueurs with different reptiles in the bottles. Our hostel, pretty cool place called Spicylaos backpacker's, has free snake whiskey. And it's nasty. So nasty:D
Today we went to see almost too beautiful waterfalls, kind of felt like swimming in a waterpark. The colour of the water was surreal! Oh and we're 6 people now, Jack from Britain and Henk from Holland joined us too:)
Tomorrow I'm leaving this place again for some smaller towns and s*** somewhere in the west (I'm following the Germans so who knows). Then we'll head to Vang Vieng and see how long we can take the party people there.
