Happy Belated Lao New Year 2010

First of all, I like to say “Soke Dee Pee Mai” which simply meant “Happy New Year”.  I have so many stories to tell and I don’t even know where to begin.  As many of you might know that this is not my first trip back to visit Laos.  Out of all my trips back to Laos, I never feel this sad about leaving the country.  I miss my grandparents, relatives and friends.  Five weeks flew by so quick and I wasn’t ready to come back.  I wanted to extend my vacation for 2 more weeks.  Although I’ve been back for almost a week and I still haven’t yet adjust it back to the U.S. time zone.  It is driving me crazy cause I am up all night and sleeping all day.

Here are some of pictures.

      Jeffrey – I’m doing okay and back to the U.S. safely. Time flew by so quick on this trip and I didn’t want to come back at all. I was emotional wrecked on the last day there and was so sad that I have to leave.. Thanks for stopping by.

    seeharhed, great photos, especially the last one. 🙂

    It sounds like you had a great time. I didn’t have time to adjust like you, I was back at work right away. My trip was too short also, I would love to live in Laos for 6 months, but then I would miss my family in the US. 😦

      Nye – Thanks!! I had a blast:-) I ate well.. If anything I think I probably gained some weight on this trip. hahahha I didn’t really have a problem at all other than the heat wave. Even the locals are complaining about how hot it is.

      More photos and stories coming soon…

      Victor – Thanks for the warm welcoming back. I’ve been back to the U.S. soil for almost a week and I still having problem adjusting back to the daily routines. I found myself missing Laos and constantly thinking about the people back there:-).

      Today is my first day back to work.. back to the reality. So, stay tune for more stories about Laos coming soon.
