Easing into the LP way of life: relaxing calmness lubricated with Lao coffee, punctuated with the occasional cake. The official name for the country is the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, but the locals say that the initials PDR really stand for Please Don’t Rush.

The ride in the back of a small truck (closest thing to a taxi around here) is not so relaxing, but it gets us to the waterfalls. The description in the guide book is completely over-egged, but it’s quite amusing watching Chinese tourists in their pants diving in from the upper tier and attempting, but failing, to launch themselves in from the rope swing.
