Bike-Ride to Australia Monday 23rd-January 2012 Luanghrabang. Well, I did decide to stop another night and make the most of the internet. I needed to sort out a few bits with the website, mainly uploading photo albums. Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to resolve the issue, and I’m waiting for another response from Flickr, the app I use. One of the joys of being on the road and not having the internet.
Luanghrabang is definitely a tourists destination, and I’m pretty glad my hotel is on the outskirts of the town, away from it all! I’ve spent most of the day in my hotel room trying to sort out things! Although when I went out for something to eat, I also had a ride around for an hour or two.
I’m not sure whether I’ve mentioned it before, but Laos is such a friendly place. Every time I cycle through a village, the children run out of their houses waving and shouting Sabai-dee, which I think is hello! It’s like a wave going through the village. The children and adults from the first house come out, then as you look up through the village, as if in turn, they all come out of their homes. They are waving and shouting, with many of them beckoning me to stop and go into their home.
Don’t forget you can still sponsor me at http://www.justgiving.com/Garry-McGivern all monies go to cancer research. We all know somebody who has had or have been affected by cancer in some way. So come on, dig deep. I know times are hard, but everybody can afford just a couple of pounds. This last week or so from Kunming has been pretty tough! I think I deserve some more sponsorship!
