Onward and upward!

We caught the early bus to Chiang Rai, then another to Chiang Khong! You can tell how thrilled we are to be on a bus again! 

The scenery was beautiful, so green and lush! 

A typical bus! 

The bus driver thought it was so funny that Andrew took this picture. And that I was hanging out of the bus! 

The view from our hostel in Chiang Khong. On the other side of the Mekong River is a Laos town, Huay Xia! 

TONS of birds on the power line! 

Just one of the fancy bathrooms we have encountered! 

I thought this was so random! 

We enjoyed watching the Loi Kathong festival. Have you seen "Tangled", the disney movie? Well, in the end, where they release all those lanturns? Thats what they do here! So we got to watch and enjoy the celebration! 

So many colorful lanterns everywhere! And fireworks being set off my ALL of the kids, even the 3 year olds! It would be soooooo illegal in Canada! 

The view from our hostel. It was so pretty! 

So there you have our last night in Thailand (for a month or so). 
The next morning we caught the slow boat from Huay Xai to Laung Prabang! 
More on that soon!
