Vang Vieng views

Green Path is not a travel diary but I am going to make an exception to show off the beautiful country around Vang Vieng, about halfway between Vientiane and Luang Prabang.

The first three photos were taken on an early morning amble which led me from town along the river bank, across the river and into the rice paddies before I turned back. The remainder show the farming country near Wolf Cave, about 10km out of town.

The centipede’s dilemma

A centipede was happy quite,
Until a frog in fun
Said, “Pray, which leg comes after which?”
This raised her mind to such a pitch,
She lay distracted in the ditch
Considering how to run.
