Doklet- Nha Trang, Vietnam

Just look at the place... need I write more? We stayed at the White Sand Resort, Doklet (pronounced 'jok-let'). And just did not want to leave.
I am grateful that someone invented the camera. Sunrise like this is hard to imagine. Or maybe because my imagination sucks. Is there a name for the colour of the sky?!

That's my thong/slipper. The crab is not a pet, though it was bloody curious.

Waiting: Siem Reap to Bangkok

1. Waiting at the airport to get to the penultimate leg of our journey. Ideally, we should have been sitting on an island beach. Except that Indian passport cannot get you across road borders from Cambodia into Thailand. So we reached the border and had to come back to the hotel.

2. I think, think because I have not checked my big bag yet...that I might have lost my notebook. That is depressing enough to not want to write anymore. :(

This picture was taken on the first boat trip in Luang Prabang. We had an overnight stopover at a village called Pakh Beng and what a storm it was! Olympus 900 camera, hi shutter speed and 27 shots in one row yielded this. I'm hoping it would clear out more with some photoshop. Whaddyathink?

2. Boat trip: The next day, thanks to the previous night's storm and loads of food and drinking, this is what the people on the boat looked like...

So far, so good

Chiang Mai, Thailand

It's almost like being on a food tour. I love the street food and love the way things are cooked here.

Do notice that I wrote 'things' are cooked... Cicadas, frogs, jellyfish, snake to the usual pigs, fish and everything else that moves can be prepared here.

The second picture is of a dish wrapped in vine leaves with interesting stuffing...
