Photogenic Luang Prabang

Red and green chili peppers left to dry in the sun

The moment I arrived in the old section of Luang Prabang (a World Heritage town), I fell for its charm. I believe “cute” was the exact word out of my mouth as the tuk-tuck dropped Caroline and I off (Nicholas was still tubing back in Vang Vieng).

On my first morning, I walked north toward the confluence of the two rivers which surround the city. I didn't get far before the camera came out, and I found great photo opportunities everywhere I turned.

I love the chilies, great shot. Did you at least get a ride on the frankentuk-tuk?

Hey Mike - thanks! I didn't ride that particular frankentuk-tuk, but I had been on a few that have the motorcycle front end. Same same as others, but different! :)

So colorful and vibrant. Are those Jalapeños in the first photo

I think their Thai chilis....much smaller than jalapenos.

:lol: These photos are just too cute. Love the colors of the chillies in the first one. I'd be tempted to scoop up a handful to go with a bowl of noodles or somethin'.
