We spent most of the afternoon building sand stupa and taking part in the celebration of Boun Pi Mai Lao (Lao New Year). When we were worn out but not hungry, we decided to take break from the fun with more eating and drinking. In my case it was bottle water and Oishi Green Tea to wash down the spicy green papaya salad.
