Luang Prabang is . . .
ceiling fans, buffalo tartare, bamboo, mekong river, sunsets, wats, orange, sticky rice, creme brulee, armagnac, tourists with big cameras, motorcycles, empty streets, bridges, monks, rivers, vegetables, flowers, baguettes, night markets, morning markets,
coffee, Beerlao, World Heritage Site, creperies, and Chinese-manufactured automobiles. In a word, Luang Prabang is salubrious.
