Pakmong to Nong Khiaw

This was a lovely little ride up and down the rolling hills. It was 32 Km to the guest house we chose right across from the bus station.

We took a bit of R&R and enjoyed this sleepy little town. Again we were overwhelmed with the nice slow pace the Laos people follow. This town had a great atmosphere, with both Lao food and some western choices.

We went to a set of caves outside of town, where the village and surrounding villages spent several years living during the USA Bombing of Laos. It is too bad, as Laos declared itself neutral in the cold war conflicts. Even so, the VC trained in the hills of Laos and the USA bombed the hell out of it. They say for the first little while, the Laos people were in the caves, unaware of who was bombing them, as they had no enemies.

If you use THE GOOGLE (as George Bush so gracefully coined it) and search US Bombing of Laos, you will read a lot about secret army and CIA and how the people of Laos were bombed for nearly 10 years and it was not their battle.

Here is a photo of the entrance to one of the caves.
