On the way back from Pak Ou we stop to get a broken rack on one of the bikes welded up. We pull up and show them what we want and they do it straight away and all for the princely sum of 15000 kip (about $1.80 us) --Bargain--- , I gave him double and said buy yourself a beer, I was hot just watching him No way on earth would you get service like that at home

We took a detour to Wat Phoul Phao amazing art work although not that old

On the lower levels their a pictures depicting hell on earth then as you rise in levels you come closer to enlightenment

the view from the first level was good too

and in this pic you can see the temple on Phousi hill in the center of town

Higher levels at wat phol phou

this is the second highest level and although I stuck my head up the top, there was 2 women praying and I didn't want to disturb them.

on the way back down I spied this on a book cabinet. Even if you're not a buddist the name Tripitaka would ring a bell if your a fan on the TV show Monkey.

A climb up Phousi hill that evening was well worth it apart from all the bloody tourists

And the view back to Wat Phol phao
