Before entering the temple grounds, I pulled out the sweater I brought to cover my arms. As requested by Orange Robe Tours.

Before finalizing our stay at the The Belle Rive Boutique Hotel, I had booked and subsequently cancelled reservations at two or three other hotels.

That is a testament because my sense of smell fails me a lot, but not in Laos. There, I could smell everything. The flowers, in particular, were incredibly pungent.
