Vang Vieng

Vang Vieng es una parada casi obligatoria entre Luang Prabang y la capital Vientiane. Para describirla brevemente, montañas acojonantes con una bonita puesta de sol y backpacker a muerte viendo friends en los bares, haciendo tubbing y mamándose desde las 5 de la tarde. A nosotros nos vino de lujo esta paradita porque conseguimos un hotelillo de bungalows brutal con vistas al Mekong y a las montañas. Llegamos por la tarde y fuimos directos a un barecillo a picar algo con la puesta de sol. Era genial ver a todos los chavales locales refrescándose del calor inhumano que hace con el último baño del día. Todo era como mágico, el color rojizo en el rio, ellos chapoteando y las niñas al lado lavándose el pelo. Nos recordó un poco a Guilin en China, las mismas montañas cársticas, selva y rio. Esa noche nos volvimos al hotel prontito y craso error (a mi me da un miedo que me muero y no puedo dormir después) nos enganchamos a Lost. Esta es la portada del album!

Laos: Vang Vieng

 En principio al día siguiente ibamos hacer un Tubbing pero aún teníamos secuelas de la fiesta del agua y medio pachuchos con lo que decidimos no hacer nada. Zumito en un barecillo de camas, alguna cerve y comidita y más Lost en el hotelillo con balcón y aire acondicionado mientras el resto veían friends en la sombra y con gotones de sudor, hehehe. Por la noche dimos una vueltecilla y al ver lo triste que era el pueblucho y sobre todo la zona de marcha, pintaba bien por el día, nos volvimos a nuestra serie. La zona de bares es una islita en el rio con música mala a todo meter, mil luces, cutre a más no poder y 3 guiris apestando a alcohol bailando sin chanclas (algún cabrón me mango las mías).

    Oops…. changed the name now!

    Never been to Vietnam myself, Kat was there a few years ago, reckon I could persuade her to go back!
    We looked for our names… saw them in the blog! Will put into Babelfish.
    Japan was just awesome start to finish. After Kyoto (and an amazing day in Inari) we headed to Takayama, followed by Shirakawa-go/ Ogimashi and Magome. So nice being in the mountains and countryside – really beautiful. Then we headed back to Tokyo for a week – such an awesome time! We even missed our flight…. I think we just need to move there. London is so booooooring right now! Probably as we have no money.

    New music wise I’m loving Florence & the Machine, Little Boots, Bon Iver and Palmoa Faith.. there’s a lot of women artists around at the moment!

  7. Helen dice:

    Hello Kat, thanks for the music advice, we’ll definetly give them a look and tell you what we think of them! Hope your return to reality hasn’t been as bad a Michaels. Or better, hope it’s bad enough to make you leave everything and go for a round the world trip with him hehehehe!
