Today has been a quiet one. I left Liverpool on Wednesday and today is the first day without travel. Left Pakse in a minivan for the one and a half hour trip here. Hard to believe that this sleepy riverside town used to be the seat of the Laos royal family until relatively recently. Inthira Guest house is a refined bit of luxury (my last for a while). Lunched at Champasak with Love on the side of the river. Off to Wat Phu tomorrow to see the extensive kymer temple ruins.
