So Laos is nice. It hasn't exactly been nice to us, but its nice.
This last week's catala(o)gue of disasters:
Adam gave himself two black eyes and a possible fractured nose whilst plummeting off a zipwire from a great height. He has spent the last few days looking remarkably like a congested elephant.
We both suffered diabolical alcohol-poisoning after consuming a lethal mix of snake juice and stolen Scottish whisky.
A gigantic hand-sized hairy spider made its home in our hut. I discovered it in a distressingly myopic fashion.
I went completely off-the-radar bonkers for a few days in Luang Prabang, thanks to the impressive side-effects of some prescription drugs.
We lost the bag off the back of the bike, somewhere very remote along the highway. We lost a wide variety of items...
The ride has been very nice though. Laos is stunning. The waterfalls are amazing, and we happened upon a bear sanctuary. Still, not sure it will stick in my mind for the positives.
A real update will follow, just as soon as I've got my breath back and have stopped wanting to chuck myself down ravines. Goodbye.
