what an exciting part of your trip! the falls were really beautiful and those interesting treats at the end too, thanks for sharing!


Hi Kat - Thanks!


I think your pictures of the falls are beautiful!

Did you hear the lady with the pig parts counting, "One for you, 1 for me. Two for you, 1, 2 for me. Three for you, 1, 2, 3 for me..."

hop-popping machine... HAHAHAHAHAHHA ;).

i must share something: this is the first time in months im reading your blog and not eating oatmeal! mmm... matzo ball soup (for breakfast, yes)

ed (from Yuma)

Another great report even if it sounds like the Missus was doing crack.

BTW, I've been making SE Asian influenced cucumber salads after reading about these here on the blog. Good flavors.


I love these little moments in time that you describe. and I agree that the pictures are great - the beauty of the falls speaks for themselves, no? I imagine that the sound of the falls was loud...


Hops? It must be from a different part of the plant than what they actually use in beer? It looks way different.

Could it be the "seasoning" they use for an indigenous beverage, and "hops" is the easiest translation?


Hi Carol - he-he-he......maybe that's what she was saying in Lao?

Hi Judy - And here I thought you were the model of consistency...

Hi Ed - She was doing "crack"... ;o)

Hi FH - Yes, the roaring of the water could be heard from far away.

Hi Jan - More likely it was a species of the genus Humulus.... but I also read that there are 100's if not 1000's of varieties of hops. I just wrote what I was told they were...I just checked and there's not much on the Internet on it - though I found a photo on this post - a photo almost at the bottom. It also says Hops for Beer:

So I dunno.

What a peaceful, serene environment. And those hops sound mighty tasty, I would "hop to" those hops anytime! And I think this is the first time I have noticed the Missus in your pictures! Wow, she's gorgeous!


Hi PE - Oh-oh, this might go to her head faster than hops!
