Mekong Sunsets

They say warm weather is conducive to spectacular sunsets.

But that doesn’t explain why the sunsets on the Mekong were so much more memorable than any I have witnessed in the subcontinent…..and there have been many. I am a West coast girl remember?

Whatever the reason, those moments spent in anticipation of the radiant feast of days end, shall remain some of the most enduring memories of our recent trip.

“…….And the artist drops his
pencil, a
nd weeps in mute despair,
For he cannot paint the glory
That lies in the sunset there.”

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
