Less than an hour after lunch the sky started to pour down on Vientiane. I was worried that it might rain on the day of Boun Ok Phansa or the following day on Boat Racing Festival. I can’t remember the rainy weather at this time of the year (October) when I was living in Laos as a kid. For the last couple of days the weather changed so suddenly within few hours.

The sky cleared up by dinner time. I was treated to a special Jeow made from nor phai from Xieng Khouang. Then for dessert after dinner, I tried a few bites of khao mao from Savannakhet.
