Before I continue a closing thought about Luang Prabang, if you will permit me. The monks make their morning journey collecting alms and they are constantly accosted by tourists, mostly Chinese and European. They crowd the monks and basically show no respect at all. It would be a simple thing for the city of Luang Prabong to cordon off the street and allow room. The monks and the people who pay respect by giving food would have room and could experience the morning as it was meant to be. The tourist would have better pictures because other tourists wouldn’t be in the way! It is a world heritage city, this shouldn’t be to hard to accomplish. We won’t even bitch about the Europeans smoking everywhere although the no smoking signs are abound.
