Slower than dial-up

Contrary to what the signs say here in Lao PDR, there is no such thing as High Speed Internet. I can't upload pictures, I have to wait for webpages to load, and even getting to this blog to post, that took a good 4 minutes. I guess that's not much time, but for the amount of photos I like to post, well, I'm just 2 weeks behind already!

So, instead, I will try to summarize a few things, and will do the best to catch up on the photos when we have decent internet, which should be in South Korea or New York.

Today, we are in Luang Prabang, Lao PDR. The previous 5 days, however, have been rather eventful. As many of you may know, Laura and I donated a boat to a village as our 'wedding gift' back to our attendees of our wedding. Instead of the normal sachet of Jordan Almonds, we decided it would be beneficial to our teeth and waistline to donate a boat instead. Now, to get the boat to the village, that is part of the last 5 days.

First we started out and went to this town, then that one, then the other. On the way, we passed several villages. The road was bumpy. It was a spine jarring good time. the end. ok, so maybe it didn't go so short and sweet, but something came up, and I have to go. so, till the next time, thanks for reading...
