4000 Islands, Laos

I spent a couple of days in 4000 islands “tubing” (sitting in a truck inner tube and floating down a river) and also did a full day kayaking on the Mekong River. The river is so big that it has dolphins so the trip also involved some dolphin spotting – though they didn’t come too close. It i s so so hot here that despite applying sun cream constantly I still manged to catch the sun – which I had managed to avid until now. After about 10am it is also impossible to stand barefoot on sand because your feet melt.

I also bumped into my Polish friends Przemek and Monika who travelled down the day after me (although this time I knew they were coming!)
