Crossing the mighty Mekong, Laos
I will focus more on Luang Prabang and the Mekong running through it in the next couple of posts, but here is a quick video of what it feels like to cross the river. It looks small until you sit in a boat. I was actually under the impression that I was the only person crossing the river with the small boat until I realized that other people kept entering the boat, with all their bags and animals until the fully loaded boat sits just a few centimeters on top of the water.
