Motorbike ride near Thakhek in Laos

Way back in January I traveled between Don Det in the 4000 Islands area of Laos up to Vientiane stopping at a few towns along the route. While in Thakhek I rented a Motorbike/Scooter and rode around enjoying myself being on a bike and seeing the beautiful scenery. Below are a couple of pictures and a few seconds of video from me holding my camera out while zipping along the road.

Most of the backpackers that rent bikes here do a large loop of the area visiting the Tham Kong Lo cave. I was not sure I was up for 3 or 4 long days on the motorbike so kept it to shorter rides visiting the closer caves and visiting farmers fields as in the picture above.

Friday Faces-Trujillo, Spain

I took this picture of some boys playing football (soccer) in the Plaza Major in Trujillo Spain. This square is a very scenic place and I found it a interesting place for a game of fotty.

Here is another picture of the Plaza that is from 4 pictures put together so you get a better idea of their playing field.

A Salamanca Hello to Mom and Dad

I decided to do a short video to say hello my Mom and Dad. I have added a few of my pictures and a bit of music and here it is. I am a bit of embarrassed by the video and pictures of myself but the one advantage of so few readers of my blog is I know not many people will see it.

Friday Face-Tetouan, Morocco

I am posting this picture of a Berber lady in Tetouan Morocco because of her hat. I saw these hats frequently in both Tetouan and Chefchaouen and don't know why but I liked the way they looked.

I also saw a few ladies with hats with what looked like different colored flowers around the brim but I preferred these straw hats with the black fuzzy decoration.
