Our House in Laos
A number of people have asked about our house in Laos. I started taking pictures of it over a week ago, and then we lost internet during a torrential downpour, and it was just restored today, so here they are.
The front gate. It slides to the right to allow a car to drive through. For those walking or riding mopeds, only the small gate on the right is opened.
So, there you have it. It is a very big, beautiful house. The company chose it for us and we are very happy with it. It is actually stipulated in the rental agreement that you have a housekeeper and a guard, so I'm also very happy that I am not in charge of cleaning it! because it is very big. Lots of wood floors to sweep and mop. There is not "central" air conditioning, but there are wall units in almost every room, so we have the air going in the bedrooms and the living room all of the time, and then we turn it on in the dining room or kitchen as needed. We're hoping that means our electric bill will be somewhat reasonable. We should find out tomorrow. Let me know if there's anything I left out that you were curious about. I know a lot of the pictures have bad lighting and I'm sorry for that.
You're welcome to visit whenever you're in the area!
