Slow boat to Luang Prabang (Laos) Day 2
After a pretty crap breakfast (I could remember Zach was not a happy chappy), we jumped onto the taxi to the port..
After we thought the crossover boat from Thailand to Laos was our “slow boat”, we got to the crazy border of Laos!! Absolutely chaos!!! But somewhat organized chaos!
Everyone got their Visas and we crossed the border to Loas and waited for the taxi to take us to the Slow Boat. Grabbed breakfast, saw some crazy cobra alcohol and I went to the ATM and in a very short time I became a millionaire (for a short moment until I will lost it all…. ( Story will follow…. ).
*** Im not gonna go into detail about the slow boat, because it will not be nearly as appreciated as the people that were actually on the Slow Boat ****
Our new group of friends got a nice place in the front of the boat… And in a short amount of time we got our local beer… BeerLao!!! The beer were flowing and the scenery just got better!! This was scenery that I was expecting and hoping I will see in South East Asia!!
Carolinne got hold of a small guitar and started to sing! And from that very moment things got crazy!! Met more great people and everyone joined in to sing and dance in front of the boat! If you look right or left, you can just catch a glimpse of all the smiles and you just know… This is it, a moment in time where everyone is having the time of their life!!
After an extremely crazy time on the boat we got to our next stopover… Pakbeng! Straight to our hostel and from there looking for a restaurant to get something to eat…..
If you walk past a restaurant with a sign saying ” free whiskey “, don’t tell me you will walk past! Got our seats and our whiskey… Well it tasted like.. In South Africa we call it Wit Blits!
About an hour after getting there everyone of the slow boat was arriving at the same restaurant, drinking BeerLao and the so called Whiskey Shots. Again things just got out of hand and everyone started to dance around the tables. And somewhere I got the chance to show some Langarm dancing to my new friends!
