  1. I loved SE Asia. I visited there in the fall of 2005. I love all of the bright colours and the gorgeous temples, etc. Thailand and Vietnam were lovely. For my friend and I, Laos wasn’t that great, but hey, that’s just me and when were there, we had very little sleep and I had swollen feet from the high humidity and heat. Still glad that I went though. Nice shot of the Golden Buddha.
