Back to Seoul

Monday Jan 11 was a very very long day for us. We were in Bangkok, Seoul and Los Angeles, not to mention 18 or so hours on airplanes.

At some point, we went back to the palace in Seoul while on our 12-hour layover there…

I like these ‘guards’ though Patsy thinks the fake beards peg them as low-rent actors who couldn’t get real acting work. They still make decent portrait subjects imho.

Luang Prabang – Cooking School

We spent most of today in cooking school here in Luang Prabang. It was a really spectacular experience – we made five dishes, learned two others, and had two great meals. (All for $30 each, how’s that for a bargain?) (Patsy reminds me that the day included a trip to the market (which was only semi-covered) during a torrential rainstorm. During this, my camera’s memory card crapped out, making me fear that a day of shooting had been lost (I recovered the images eventually))

It was a good way to cap off a visit to Luang Prabang after a few days of walking and hiking. We finished the day with (yet another) trip to the night craft market and some crepes.
