Champasak Province

Today we went to the Vat Phou, a pre-Ankor temple in this side of the border. If you like it don't worry, in about 10 days you will get fresh pics of the great Ankor Watt...

Ruines of the Southern Palace at Vat Phou:

Crossing the Mekong River to get there:

Nice passage to the temple:

Fallen flowers of those trees from up:

Top view:

The temple itself (ruines, but still...):

The way back, driving a motorbike for the first time in my life (semi-automatic, not a scooter...):

 Stone carvings at the temple:

So here are the pics of the 2-day motorbike tour to the Bolaven Plateau, many waterfalls, nice rural villages and a lot of riding...

a ladyboy at Phaxuam Waterfall. They are completely integrated in society, transsexual kids, some are operated and have breasts:

Myself at the Phaxuam Waterfall:

Our hut at Tad Lo village:

So today and tomorrow will be in Vientiane and around, boring city, but with some funny places...

Next pics from Vientiane will bring something more special... I hope!

And today brought a surprise, the psychodelic and crazy Buddha Park in Xieng Khuan:

Don't ask me to comment any of these pictures, because I really don't know what is going on, they are supposed to be a mix of Hinduism and Buddhism, along with some other stuff...

The next entry... Champasak Province
