Evening in Luang Prabang

January 2 (part 2): In the afternoon we flew from Chiang Mai in Thailand to Luang Prabang in Laos. After getting settled in our (really elegant) hotel, we walked into town for dinner.

There are several impressive temples with associated monasteries along the way. We passed a monk at his studies on the porch of his temple.

After dinner we walked through the VERY extensive Night Market, which mainly features indigenous peoples selling their crafts. We saw a variety of expressions on the faces of the vendors, including hopefulness,

boredom, and

concentration on making new work.
