Color Me Jaded

I’m just not that impressed with Laos. Seeing as how everyone else raves about the country, especially how friendly the people are, we can probably just chalk this up to me being jaded.

Temples? Saw plenty in Thailand, and in better shape.

Huts on piles, woven of palm fronds and bamboo? All over Madagascar.

Landscape? Dry, brown and dusty, with huge swathes of felled trees, awaiting burning, so the land can be cultivated.

The people? Nice enough. maybe I’ll think more highly of them after being in Vietnam a few days. The Vietnamese have a reputation for being rude and pushy and downright aggressive, especially where money is concerned.

Anyhow, I’m not saying don’t go to Laos, but I don’t know that I’ll ever return.
