Here now and now here or nowhere
The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Muong Ngoi Fishing Trip
One trip I went out on while in Muong Ngoi was to go on a fishing trip. We sailed up the river in a small boat and cast out a net to trap fish in. We didn't catch much but the time on the water was so relaxing and peaceful. The sun shining was warm with the water cold and everything had this nice happy feel to it. We picked some fresh herbs and ferns as well as some fresh veggies, made a fire and cooked up the fish and veggies. The fishermen brought sticky rice, as it's pretty much a common accompaniment with every lao dish. The rustic nature of it and the self reliance/suppliance of it all made for a rewarding and enjoyable day.
