Northern Laos in Seventeen Syllables

Everyone who had been there said, "Spend as much time in Laos as possible." Unfortunately we didn't heed their advice: partly because of geographical constraints, and partly because of some outside circumstances, we had to take one destination off our southern Laos plans, and rush through the north a bit. We still enjoyed the heck out of our time in Vientiane, Luang Prabang, and Nong Khiaw, but have to add Laos to the long list of places we want to return to.

So in commemoration of our abbreviated time in this wonderful country, please enjoy this summary of northern Laos, in haiku form.

Moving morning at
the COPE center. So sad what
war does to people.
