We drove through wonderfully green scenery with never ending mountains and small villages clinging to the steep slopes.
We stopped in many Hmong villages to interact with the friendly people. The Hmong form the largest hill tribe group in Laos. They are quite recent immigrants, having come from Burma, Tibet and China during the last century or so.
Returning to Luang Prabang, we stopped by a waterfall to let the children cool off in the clear pools below the falls. A true water wonder land.
