Today was great. I started the day with mulberry wheat pancakes from a restaurant that is owned by a local organic farm and then met up with a group and went caving then tubing down the Nam Song river. The river is surrounded by huge rocky bluffs that are absolutely breathtaking. The first portion of the tubing is where all of the "frat bars" are which all have zip line rope swings (which look super fun, but the boyfriend of a girl I was with dislocated his shoulder on one yesterday so I opted out) and swarms of drunks, but after we passed those by I was completely at peace in a truly stunning setting. Can't complain at all about letting a light current float you down a river on a hot day. Ended the day with a chocolate and banana pancake crepe from a street vendor and am plumb tuckered out. I've decided to stay here for another day as sitting beside the river tomorrow with a book sounds like an excellent idea. And, the sunset today makes me yearn for another tomorrow. Fratville conquered, I guess (look how open minded I am ;)).
