my hotel! :)

unfortunately, i did not have the best night's sleep last night.  there was an air conditioner on in the room above me that was clanking away all night - and not in a relaxing kind of way.  sooooo - when i got up this morning, i decided to make the move to the elephant crossing.  it was just so lovely hanging out there last night & it seemed like such a comfy place to stay!  so, i packed up my stuff & moved out of my guesthouse.  the woman there was so apologetic & so nice about it - she gave me my money back that i had paid for the 2nd night.

i moved into the elephant crossing and i am so happy!  it's definitely a bit cush - but i am SOOO happy about it.  i'm kind of spacey today so i will definitely need a nap at some point & the bed is so comfy i'm looking forward to it.

i ran into fiona again at breakfast & i met her husband, wayne.  they are such an interesting couple.  they are from perth & they have been staying in vang vieng for over 2 weeks now.  they just love it here.  he has tatoos all over his body of a gecko, turtles & other sea creatures.  she has long blonde hair & if she were a muppet she would be janice.  i think that's her name...the one with the long blonde hair that's all hippy dippy.  they are defintiely enjoying the party-life here too.  they were so much fun to talk to.

it was totally raining this morning so no rafting or biking for me today.  i'm kind of excited about it because i am looking forward to doing some reading & just sitting on the gorgeous balcony i have in my room.

  it overlooks the nam song & the beautiful karsts across the river!

just doing a little e-mail checking, bill paying, admin stuff for my habitat for humanity trip....stuff that isn't the most fun to do - but needs to get done, so i figured i would update my blog while i was at it.  going to attempt to upload some pictures now too! 

i just loved hanging out in the rain today.  the lightening was just so cool & it was nice to have a very mellow day somewhat forced upon me.  i just hung out in my room, read, & sat by the river.  i did manage to make it to the kangaroo bar - but that was really all the activity i had for the day!  :)  oh - that and a massage in my room.  i just LOVE how cheap massages are in this part of the world!  :)
