Pictures, Luang Prabang

Kids riding on an old spinning Russian gun emplacement.

There's a hill in the middle of Luang Prabang called Phu Si. Up top of Phu Si you get a fairly good view of the city, a Wat, and ... an old Russian anti-aircraft gun base. It spins freely, and so it's popular with the kids.

Colourful mirrored tile on concrete - a lot of the tiles have gone missing.

Wat Xieng Thong is heavily decorated with mirror tile, but they've lost some of it with the years.
