We booked a day excursion to see two of the local sights – Pak Ou Caves and the Kuang Si waterfall. Julia was still feeling a bit below average and the trip started out a little slowly with us waiting for an hour early in the morning to get a boat up the river. Julia ended up piking and staying behind but my curiosity got the better of me and I persevered. I wish I hadn’t bothered. An extremely boring 2 hour slow boat trip up the river to the most underwhelming caves so far and whats more I was stuck talking to an Aussie guy in his 50s with a mullet for the whole morning. I wasn’t happy. The most exciting thing I saw was this chicken:
On my late return Julia bribed me with chocolate and we headed to Kuang Si Waterfall with a picnic lunch. I forced Julia to climb to the top of the waterfall with me – quite a hairy walk up steps through the waterfall itself. We walked around the park and had a look at the bear rescue centre and a tiger.
