The first thing that struck me about Laos were the trees, as we came into land, there were trees, trees everywhere, an unbroken canopy of beautiful trees.  I had a powerful sense that we had gone back in time to a simpler place. away from the problems of the modern world.

The French Colonists used to say; ” The Vietnamese plant the rice, the Cambodians watch it grown and the Lao listen to it grow.”

We found the Lao people some of the gentlest people we had met in Asia, they did everything in a calm collected way.  Everything worked and we didn’t experience the usual hassles of travelling that we usually did in Asia.  The longer we spent in Laos the more time we spent just sitting and watching, I loved watching the beautiful landscape and especially the wide slow flowing rivers that are the main transportation arteries in this mountainous country.
