    It sounds like you are having great weather for Laos and Luang Prabang. Loved your stories — a cooking class in the jungle. What did you cook? And the trip to the conservation site. I have never heard of monks going door to door for their morning food offerings. Do they offer blessings? Want to hear more about this tradition. It sounds like you are having a ball. I would have loved to have tagged along. Another wonderful post. Have enjoyed keeping up with you.

    • Thankyou Pat, its lovely that you are “tagging” along. we cooked “sticky rice”, made two different sauces, we also made a chicken dish.
      The monks did not go door to door but merely walked the streets in a line and you knelt down and popped food into there bowls as they quickly walked past. This is done as they walk in the MIDDLE of the street. Amazing ritual to watch, later they can be seen leaving little morsels of food under trees or some sacred place that is there place of worship for family or friends that have passed away.
      I promise Pat to post some pics with my last Postcard. Stay tuned for my next “Postcard”.
