May have been distracted by the 80's wonderfulness - and I have to say, they hold up pretty well over the ages.
And my Lo sadly has nothing to do with Spandau Ballet or the 80's. But slowly getting through holiday photos. Luang Prabang in Laos is renowned for it's abundance of Buddhist Temples and of course the colour that dominates is gold - everywhere.
One of the most astonishing temples that we visited was in the grounds of the old kings palace. The temple was very, gloriously over the top esp when compared to the actual palace which seemed fairly modest.
of course the most famous temple in the capital of Laos is this modest little temple - found on their National flag and everywhere really. Seen in the late afternoon it is one of the more astonishing (and a little blinding) things I have seen.
Again, please visit Laos if the opportunity arises - such a wonderful country... (ok I just love the pancakes made on one of the street stalls, would kill for one now).
Ok, I have actually started on another real paper Lo, must continue on - another messy one I think.
see you soon. xx
