Most of my friends back in Laos are city folks. During the weekends they all try to stay away from the city as much as possible. One of the weekend when I was there, we all decided to have lunch at my buddy’s farm. Most of the foods were bought in the city and some are being cook at the farm by a friend’s personal caddy. Yes! Caddy :-). He golf so much that he have a personal caddy that mainly works for him. At first I was like, where you find these to people to come and grilled the fishes for us.
It was a nice relaxing day at the farm and the views are awesome.
my buddy's farm along the Mekong River.. he just them build this hut few months earlier
what a view.. the hut is just few steps away from the edge of river bank. the right side across the river is Thailand
this hut is pretty good size.. we had about 18 people that day.. that is one big mango tree next to the hut
my buddy bought this farm about 3 years ago and he can get triple of what he paid for.. as you can see the erosion control works has been done the river bank..
this guy papaya salas was super hot.. i taste it once and i was done..
chow down time.. these guys are eating "punh pa" grilled fish. it is too much works for me, i stick with bbq chicken
this is what happen after too much foods and beerlao.
the caddy is trying to pick some mangoes for us..
