During my one month in Laos I never problem with getting up early in the morning. I slept better this time after a week or so and didn’t get sick at all unlike my previous trip to Laos in 2008. For whatever reason I was always the first one in the house to get up. It has always been like that during all my previous trips to Laos. It was as though I didn’t want to waste my time sleeping away and wanted to absorb as much experience of Laos as possible.

Getting up early and watching the run rising in Laos is something that I can’t never get enough off. Making a visit to That Luang ground and walking around at 6:00 AM while waiting for the sun to come up was a highlight of my trip to Laos.
