Pakkading, Lao by leananiemand

Pakkading, Lao

Although it was a short day on the road, it was no less enjoyable. We left our humble abode and cycled across the Pakkading River via the Russian -built bridge that commemorates the first person in space. Yuri Gagarin was a Soviet pilot and cosmonaut and was the first human to journey into outer space when his Vostok spacecraft completed an orbit of the Earth on 12 April 1961. What a brave man!

We stopped to see if we could spot any truck drivers stopping to light a cigarette before crossing the bridge and then tossing the lit cigarette into the river below, to appease the water serpent believed to live in the river mouth.
This Serene view of the river belies the potential water serpent in the river!
