Beautiful crowded sunset

Most of the day was spent on some much needed life admin...snore!

We left our hostel late afternoon to walk up to the stupa on Mount Phousi in the middle of Luang Prabang to see the sunset. Clearly this is a popular thing to do as it was packed on top of the hill. But we did witness a beautiful sunset in a beautiful setting, albeit while having close up photos taken of us by some middle aged man. Not impressed with that!

We walked down the other side of the hill to see all the golden Buddha statues, of which there were many, listening to monks chanting as we went.

Then onto the Hive bar for a delicious dinner of pizza, pork chop, and daiquiris and to watch the Ethnik fashion show which the bar puts on most nights. The outfits were so beautiful. Jo particularly liked the clothes which had anything shiny on them (such a magpie!). And then the most amazing breakdancing performance either of us have ever seen...incredible!!
