This is now the third and last day of my trip to Loei. Last night I stayed in Chiang Khan. Today was time to head home. But first I was up early to take pictures of the alms round and then an early morning view from a local mountain top. Really it would have been nice to stay here a few more days.

I always like photographing Chinese shrines. They are so colourful. And it gets me in the mood for Chinese New Year pic.twitter.com/6JptUYpqEp— Richard Barrow (@RichardBarrow) January 17, 2015
Don’t forget, you cannot check-in power banks when flying. Must carry on the plane pic.twitter.com/Khmp1DJCfv— Richard Barrow (@RichardBarrow) January 17, 2015
