We are here in Si Phan Don on the peaceful island of Don Det. Our stilted rustic bungalow faces the Mekong River with hammocks on the balcony deck.
The restaurant attached to the guest house is run by a gregarious woman affectionately called "Mama" by everyone who stays with her. The food is delicious and the iced coffee and coconut shakes with honey are enough to make us want to stay here for weeks.
It's a shame to waste the daylight since electricity is not always accessble, so this has to be a short one. Another update will come soon!
