This sketch book is a record of a trip in 1995. It was the fourth and last ‘research’ trip organised by Intrepid Travel as they were starting a new tour package. Laos had recently opened to restricted tourism which made this trip possible. The Laos section of the trip was unforgettable for many reasons- being shipwrecked on the Mekong among them.
I trust that the sketches will have some meaning for you as well. Looking back on them after almost 20 years, they resurrect tastes and smells, fears and strong feelings.
