Luang Prabang to Luang Namtha

Today was a driving day to get us close to the Chinese border which we will cross tomorrow. We left Luang Prabang at 8.00am in our usual convoy and Vulcan was lead car for the day. The route took us up very windy roads and the calls on the radio were to avoid not just potholes and trucks broken down but the occasional water buffalo and hens wandering the road. Of course in the villages nestled next to the road, the road was the children’s ” backyard” so they had to be avoided too!

Morning tea stop was a market site with the wooden stalls…empty as today wasn’t a market day. Our short stop there revived us and we continued on until lunch when we stopped on a hilltop. It is difficult choosing a spot for 8 cars to stop at…ideally with shade.  However as our first day with this to do…it was fairly successful.

We  reached our hotel at 3.30…. in need of a shower after the dust. Photos for today as the views were magnificent will have to wait until the internet allows me to post them on the blog. For today…just words.

Tomorrow China!
