We got a pick up truck back to Luang Prabang early in the morning, I was stuck in the back with aload of crops, a Monk in training, a young couple, a joking bus conducter, and a few other, but mainly just crops, while the two girls sat in the front with the driver.
Back in Luang Prabang we checked back in to the guesthouse we were in two days before, we showered and got changed, got some breakfast and decided to do some of Luang Prabangs sights. You will have to forgive me, I'm struggling to remember which day is which in Luang Prabang, after that I'm fine, but we'll see what I come up with.
We walked down the main road looking for the biggests and most impressive Wat in town, firstly mistaking a small, partially interesting one to be it, before recognising our mistake. When we got to the big Wat, and found out the entrance fee, which I believe was something like $4, and considering our Templed out attitudes we decided not to go in, Linnea and myself took a couple of cheecky photos from the door way, which was enough for us. We walked back down the main road of the old town, to a set of stairs we had previously spotted, and read that they lead to great views of the city and had a temple Stupa on top, a type of, or usually, part of a temple. We climbed the infinite amount of stages at the hottest part of the day, what idiots, but the views at the top were worth it, the temple was not, but as I say the views were, and thats what the admission fee was for. At the bottom of the stairs we crossed the road to the former royal palace, which is now a national museum. Jade and I had a look around, and found out infact it is still a palace, but just surrounded by cordens and some of the ornamants put in glass cases with captions underneath. It was still interesting...Linnea had decided to sleep outside the palace instead of pay to go in, apparently a large group of Thai tourist surrounded her at one point, saying how beautiful she was and asking if she was ok.
That we got dinner and walked around the night market a little bit. The market is filled with scarfs in the majority, it looks great and is good fun, as a number of the market stall owners are up for a bit of banter. I've realised that I quite enjoy bartering with stall owners like that, where one can ask for prices with their tongue partially in their cheeck and have a laugh about it and things. Linnea has picked up on my...ooooooo expensive outbursts when the first price is said,'I got a bit of stick for it, because I do it all the time, but It's working and so it shall continue!!!
