Thank you Vince,

The top of both walls was supposed to look like the tail of a dragon.

To worldcitizen: A cave high on the mountain slope

Thank you Brenda,

Bedankt Lars,

Dat had men mij nog niet verteld. Het lijkt logisch dat de steden in het oosten later opgeknapt werden maar ik had het mij niet echt gerealiseerd.

To ifege: Kuang Si

Thank you Ian,

Indeed, that's a good comparison.
Later I also went to Luang Prabang and Kuang Si.

To Royaldevon: 3 versus 1

There is also one goose on the right side of the street.
Expelled from the group ? Or totally integrated in Sweden ? :)
