A Walk in Luang Prabang










You can't help but walk in Luang Prabang.
The thin and slightly hilly streets wind around the innumerable temples. Luang Prabang, the city named after the Buddha,
is a crossroads to many--the young backpackers looking for peace and enlightenment,
the tourists looking for the picturesque and exotic,
and the shutterbug who roams looking for beauty.
I returned to Luang Prabang, in search of photographs,
and, walking, found instead the timbre of peace.

Many thanks to Lotus Villas for excellent accommodations and hospitality,
Fotegrafik for the inspiration,
and Linh for walking with me.

Please come back for more.
