Upon arriving in Luang Prabang, Laos, I heard of a great hill from which to watch the sunset. Customs took awhile, and I reached the bottom of the hill with only about 15 minutes left until sunset. Still rather motion sick from the propeller plane I came in on, I hiked up the mountain as fast as I could, worried that I would miss the sunset. The hill was deceptively tall and long, so each time I thought the end was in sight, I discovered more stairs just around the bend. Although exhausted by the end, I somehow made it to the top of the “hill” in time to watch what turned out to be a very golden sunset. The beautiful mountains in the distance and the winding Mekong River made for a very peaceful setting. It was a rush climbing up there, but in the end it was worth it.
