Wed, Jan 28 – The Revenge of the Exhausted Body

My body is angry.  It’s protesting.  I’ve puked twice in two days and I have hives on my neck from sun poisoning.

I’ve just realized that this has been our schedule for the past week:

Tue and Wed: 2-day trek and village homestay north of Chiang Mai
Fri:  6-hour bus ride to Chiang Kong (on the border of Thailand and Laos)
Sat:  6-hour boat ride down the Mekong River to Laos
Sun:  8-hour boat ride and late arrival in Luang Prabangk, Laos
Mon:  1 hr rough ride to Pak Ou caves and walking around
Tue:  trek, 5 hr hike, night village
Wed:  trek, about 4-hour hike, ride back to city

It’s the revenge of the body and we’re giving it what it wants.  We need a reprieve and are staying in Luang Prabang for another day to eat some Western food, be nerds (update our blogs) and then go out to a nice dinner with Cathy and Scott
