I just had such a marvellous time in Laos. If you are interested you can read my day by day postings here on my page on travelblog (I'm Emilyk; on this site). Travelblog is an excellent resource for anyone who wishes to post from far away...check it out for your next vacation. I also have some pages here on virtualtourist.com where I rate various places that I've travelled to (and I'm aemilys on this site).
Anyway, I guess I should provide some background, I'm American from MA, I live in Paris and at 44 this was my first ever trip to Asia. I visited Thailand (mostly Bangkok) and Laos. My big adventure for 2006.
So today's lunch, well I had such a lovely and marvellous time in Sam Neua that I think I will present another lunch from there.
and so upon seeing all this greenery I guess you know what's coming next and yes it's
only just the best noodle soup I ever ate in my life and as such I'm going to post some more photos:
soup and greenery, take me back please...
I must say, if you want excellent pho with very tasty bits of pork and lots of fabulous greens you just must go to Sam Neua. This was a little roadside restaurant, no one spoke English so when I arrived and saw some girls eating soup I just pointed to it and then pointed back to me and...wow, it was so good.
