Slash and burn- so deforestation- damn!
The rest of our two hour trip back into Luang Prabang was rather uneventful, save for the extreme heat and our boatman coughing, expectorating and spitting out of his cab window, much to my irritation. Just before docking back into LP, I was shocked and saddened to see a spot of 'slash and burn' type of forest clearing. That means deforestation. Damn! More notes about slash and burn in the next caption. (Luang Prabang, Laos/ Lao PDR, April 2014)
