This morning we took the slowboat from Muang Khua to Muang Ngoy Neua. Before I picked up my breakfast at the local market. Some mandarines and bananas. Always a good start of the day. I saw on the local market also some strange other stuff, one of the pictures below shows it. I think it is a bad or something.
When you are in Sapa and want to get to Loas you can book a ticket at different shops. We booked ours in the Hao Lan hotel. (also named Diamond Hotel / barbershop, hairsalon) They can offer you a busticket between for $22. We also visited other places and asked around but this was the most cheap bus we could get to Loas from Sapa.
