News out of Laos

Flooding, and more flooding.

Highest-ever flooding hits Laos, leaves 4 dead

Luang Prabang is/was under water. Parts of Vientiane (including our beloved Sunset Bar) as well.

Most exciting time ever here in Laos!

We were at the Sunset two saturday's ago. Half underwater--but still serving cold beer, peanuts, and fried spring rolls!

Generally they say water peaks in September after high water in August, so we'll be watching closely. John's house was about 1 cm away from being flooded--we had major for a week, kids loved him. Had to boat to John's door at high water.
