Poorly in Luang Prabang

After a 4 hour bus journey from Viang Vieng we arrived in Luang Prabang. Sadly I was feeling pretty worse for wear as I had caught Dengue Fever, so as soon as we arrived we went straight into the hotel room and I didnt emerge for about a week, until the day before we were leaving. Luang Prabang is a beautiful city with French colonial style houses and two rivers running through (one being the Mekong, not sure what the other one is :s). Everything within the town is very neat and tidy, even down to the signs of the guest houses and restaraunts which are all done in exactly the same style.
Whilst in the town we checked out a couple of the Wats which were definately worth seeing as they were set out in quite a different style to the Wats of Thailand, they were really ornately decorated, with the usual colours of White, Gold and Red but they also had pictures inlaid into the outside of the walls in coloured glass of various scenes of animals.
