Wednesday walk around LPQ with my friends…

The flowers are starting to come out in Luang Prabang now. It’s been a ghost town all year and I feel lucky to be one of the few tourists to be here now. There are the random flights out at three times the price and nothing coming in. Things are natural and peaceful here, but I feel bad for the many who rely on tourism which should be booming this time of year.

It was hot for so long then it seemed to rain heavily everyday all day, but now the cool weather is here. I sometimes get the chills at night and no longer need a fan or air conditioning.

I have many great memories here and plan to have more, but this place is holy and has ancient historic energy a thousand times over my soul has seen. Kings were crowned here. Battles went down. Many good and bad things have happened on this site. If you’ve visited, you would remember the deep dream like spiritual feeling too.

Speaking of otherworldliness, look at what my buddy does to scare away evil spirits from his home!

Here’s how I roll. As a kid who was always scared of the dark, I needed a demon scarier than all the rest. You have to understand that many people around the world have NEVER heard, seen, or cared about Star Wars before, but after you show them what The Dark Lord of the Sith can do on YouTube, they fear this mini gargoyle ghost repellent, besides, we know who to call!

I was worried about him because he’d been in a crash and we heard he had a lot of breaks, but he wasn’t that bad. I tried to relax on this hammock…

Drink some is this NOT Jim Beam local moonshine that might as well be paint thinner. If you want to prove you’re a real man and drink lots of this hundred proof cocktail from hell, be my guest…

But one friend kept complaining about the noise and the other kept complaining about all the construction violations they’d be committing if this were Canada. It reminded me of when we did construction as punishment in the military, but loved it. How many red flags do you see?

Thank you for witnessing this once in a lifetime opportunity to be here now with me today. Have you been here before? Please share in the comments…
