So much has happened since I last posted! My parents visited and we had a great journey to Cambodia and then explored Lao together. Since they left, I've been hosting a parade of visitors; an old friend I haven't seen in a decade, a Peace Corps friend, and then tonight a friend from college. I've been busy and happy. My latest travels to Northern Lao with my parents have made me fall in love with Lao all over again, especially since their visit coincided with the biggest and most ridiculous holiday here; Lao New Year.
