Our travel buddies Emily and Philip have posted their Laos posts! (Or some of them anyway, I don't actually know how long the series will be).

So far we have Laos: The Place

And Laos: The People

Christmas Night Shenanigans
If you like vicarious travel, may I suggest becoming a regular visitor (or subscriber) to Emily and Philip's blog? They moved to Africa about a month after we moved to Asia and they have great pictures (giraffe kissing, anyone?) and cross-cultural stories as well.
