We arrived in Nong Khiaw, Laos yesterday and are already wishing we had come here earlier. Very small town on the Nam Ou surrounded by peaks and stunningly beautiful.
Staying in a nice little bungalow along the river. Cold at night so we plugged in the heater under the bed. When we didn’t feel much effect, I lifted the mattress and found a light box with 6 100 watt incandescent bulbs. Now I have visions of a burning mattress keeping me warm.
Clearly they will need a new plan when CFL bulbs obsolete incandescents!
