Discovering Laos with Teamworkz Mario's Adventure - Day 5 - Swimming in the air

By Laeti, 10/10/2012 - 01:07

Awakening is again in the room 409 of Champasak Palace. What happened between the temple on the mountain of Champasak and my hotel in Pakse named after has been a long and never-ending dream. Such a real dream that waking up I still think I'm being cuddled by the waters pushing Vat Phou Boat, whereas it's just the residual water drops coming from the sky after the night monsoon.

Vat Phou Boat was built at the beginning of the century, in order to transport downriver the extremely valuable "tek", construction and decoration wood, mostly resistant and refined, but that was not its destiny, because fate does not exist, the boat was doomed not to transport tek but rather being wainscoted with it.

Alla scoperta del Laos con Teamworkz - Le avventure di Mario Day 2 - Pakse Vat Phou Boat

By Laeti, 10/09/2012 - 00:49

Il Champasak Palace ? qualcosa di pi? di un albergo, fu costruito da un principe locale negli anni '50 per farla diventare la sua residenza. Qualcosa gli and? storto con la rivoluzione e, costretto a fuggire in Francia, dovette lasciare incompiuta la realizzazione del suo palazzo. Divenne cos? un albergo, arroccato su una collinetta che domina la citt?, ogni stanza ? come un piccolo appartamento e quella in cui mi sveglio, al quarto piano, ? illuminata da quel sole fosforescente che si ha solo dopo una notte di pioggia.

Champasak Palace is something more than a hotel, it was built by a local prince in the 50s in order to make it its residence. Something got wrong with the revolution and, forced to flee to France, he had to leave the building unaccomplished. So it became a hotel, clinging on a little hill overlooking the city, every room is like a small apartment and the one where I wake up, on the fourth floor, is lighted by that glowing sun that follows a rainy night.

Alla scoperta del Laos con Teamworkz - Le avventure di Mario Day 1 - Arrivo a Pakse

By Laeti, 10/07/2012 - 03:40

Ryszard Kapucinsky scrisse nel suo "In viaggio con Erodoto" che una delle sensazioni pi? emozionanti da provare ? quella di attraversare una frontiera. Quel limite geo-politico che divide due stati pu? essere una valle, un fiume, un monte oppure... nulla. Spesso ? solo una linea su una carta geografica e se lo chiamiamo confine (dal latino cum + finis) vorr? dire che da una parte qualcosa sta s? finendo, ma dall'altra qualcos'altro di certo sta iniziando.

"One of the most exciting sensations to experience is to cross a border" wrote Ryszard Kapucinsky in his book "A trip with Erodotus". That geo-political boundary dividing two states can be a valley, a river, a mountain or even.....nothing. Very often it is just a line on a geographical map and if we call it border (from the Latin cum + finis), it means something is coming to an end on one side, but something else is certainly starting on the other.
