End of Vassa, Jimmy takes a test drive

We were in Luang Prabang, Laos at the end of Vassa (Buddhist Lent). In the days leading up to the end (10/13), the entire town was building paper boats with lights that would launch on the Mekong River. Sadly we left the morning of the day that was to happen. In lieu of seeing the celebration, Jimmy takes the boat out for a test drive.
