On the way back to Hawaii with a lay over in Tokyo See you all soon.
Aloha to our Amantaka family
After feeding the monks we went to the early market, amazing.
Thenext to last photo I wish I had done a video because those things were all moving.
We got up at 5 am today to give offerings of sticky rice to the monks who every morning walk the town collecting offerings. Hundreds in total from all of the temples. We are told they do not cook.
We traveled with a guide through the villages, these were some of the people we met, most of the village people were out farming.
When pronouncing Luang Prabang, leave the sound of the g off at the end of the word.
We drove out to visit the Hmong people, who are still living in their traditional village style. You should google to read about the amazing history these people have had.
We also visited two other highland villages.
Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s traditional architecture, Laos urban structures with those built by the European colonial authorities in the 19th century, and ancient temples will always be protected. It is an amazing blend of distinct cultural traditions.
