Trapped by a passing rainstorm, Sasha and I have taken refuge in the cafe attached to the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Center in Laos. I’m drinking traditional Mak Toum Tea to pass the time. Our self-guided bicycle tour of Luang Prabang is officially on hold.
Our biggest challenge at the moment: will Sasha have the willpower to restrain herself from buying everything at the crafts shop? Only time will tell.
