Bridge building

Over the past six months we've had bushfires, floods and most recently COVID-19, but despite that the new bridge construction has been progressing steadily, as this photo shows. The image in the PiP was taken in November, some 6 months prior. Best viewed large.

Isobelle

We have had a very welcome visit this weekend by our daughter and grand daughter, the first time in months (because of the virus) that it's been possible. My lovely grand daughter kindly agreed to sit for my camera.

Scones

Visitors coming by, now it's allowed (with limitations), so I had to show off by making some scones. They may look a little untidy, but they went down well. :-)

The hibiscus wins

Taken somewhere in Luang Prabang. The fence and gate were interesting, but the red of the hibiscus was always going to steal the scene, so it became the point of focus. I'd suggest it's best viewed large. HFF and best wishes for a safe and enjoyable weekend, everyone.

Mekong boats

A friendly wave from the passenger on this boat as we passed on the Mekong. As everywhere, there is quite a diversity in the boats on the river - see PiPs.

Fishing the Mekong

Best viewed large. From what I could see, most fishing on the Mekong River in Laos is done with fixed fish traps. Four are anchored to the bank here, the PiP shows others on the bank awaiting use. Essentially, the fish swims into the tapering funnel and is unable to reverse out, with the gate somehow closing behind. Thanks to Tacheles for suggesting this musical link.

Shopping?

Lao women with baskets in Luang Prabang. I'd suggest viewing large. The weeks seem to pass remarkably quickly, it's hard to believe it's again time to wish you all HFF and best wishes for the coming weekend. Stay safe.

Golden light

Taken in our nearby nature reserve on a late afternoon "exercise" walk. Let's hope this wretched virus is soon contained - with that thought, here's a musical link. How long since you heard Jo Stafford?

The funerary carriage

This needed a vertically stitched panorama! It is the funerary carriage of King Sisavong Vong and is housed in a special Royal Carriage House at the Wat Xieng Thong (see previous image). On the carriage are copies of the funeral urns of various members of the former royal family. The Carriage House (see PiPs) was built as recently as 1960.
