This week’s photo comes from an amazing three-day trek Raquel and I did over the weekend. We had done a two-day trek in Sapa, Vietnam, but that trek visiting minority tribes in the mountains does not even come close to what we did here in Laos. This was pure roughing it. No showers. No electricity. No internet. Only smiles and hospitality in what at times was extremely difficult and tiring. I have to leave a final word for Raquel who has once again proved why she is such an amazing woman, taking all the roughing it in her stride, even the pesky leeches who seemed to liked her blood!
