After travelling all night we arrive at Pakse in time to get another bus to finish the morning off, by taking us on to Four Thousand Islands where in the usual magical way that things are strung together here, we are picked up by mini bus from the main road, then transferred by ferry to our chosen island of Don Dek

Grouser Sky! Lovely boat in the foreground, and the colours, oh the colours!

@CElliottUK: Yes the first on the whole trip. This area being right down south on the Cambodian border is particularly remote and has the bonus of that clarity of light found in unpolluted air.

Superb little boat - I like the warm light under the cloudy sky.

There is enough cloud cover to make interesting reflections on the water. A great luminoscity to the light.
