There is no mountain, then there is.

There is a mountain in the middle of Luang Prabang called Phousi. It's a very civilized mountain, which is right for such a civilized city. Even though it's covered in jungle, it has pretty brick steps all the way to the temple on the top.

This looks just like one of those oversaturated stereograph cards that I used to own... when I owned things.


Such a civilized mountain!


This tree is a gift from India, for the Buddha's 2500th birthday. How old is the tree?


Luang Prabang


And this lizard looks like it's cast in luminous bronze.

  1. All the glorious vistas and amazing architecture you show us and what takes my breath away? Why the the lovely, graceful little lizard. He needs a beautiful little shrine just for him. Something earthy and hung with tiny bronze bells and stone flowers.
