I am living now since 6 months in Luang Prabang and live in a rented house near Ban VISOUN.
Have capacity as a Babysitter or can offer tutoring in English, German or French.
Please contact me on my private E-Mail.
Hi. Sorry to bother you as of no help re your situation, but am coming to Luang Prabang later this yr as have been traveling throughout Asia looking for a place I might enjoy spending an extended amount of time. I notice u have been there quite awhile. Are you having visa issues and do you find enough to do to keep you interested for a lack of a better word. Thx.
My wife and I were married in my friend's home in Luang Prabang in 2002. It was an unbelievably beautiful traditional Lao wedding and was probably the best moment (week!) of my life. Unfortunately, since leaving Laos, we have not been able to get hold of him.
It was certainly challenging to contact him back in 2001-2002 (phone is the only thing that worked--twice!) but soon after returning home, we found that his phone didn't work. We have sent many letters/packages/gifts to what we thought was his address but I'm pretty sure we weren't writing it correctly (it was written in Lao). I have searched the internet for Luang Prabang forums or news groups or ANYTHING that might allow us to get hold of him, but there just doesn't seem to be a good way of finding him.
Does anybody know of any directories, phone-books, or anything that might assist us in figuring out a way of contacting him?
Any ideas you may have would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, just saw this--sorry for not responding sooner!
I love that idea! I had no idea there was a Facebook page for the Laos Expat Forum! Will be sending a request today.
Thank-you to everyone for the replies and the great suggestions. You are giving me hope that I may just be able to find him without actually flying half-way around the world!
Oops typo Expat Luang Pra Bang ok

One of my children went to this school for 11 years, and the other one for 8. I know the school and the owner very well. There isn't much choice in Vientiane if you don't get school fees paid by your employer and can't pay the extremely high tuition at VIS; but if you do have a choice, don't choose this place.

A lot of the teachers are qualified and experienced - but all the rest is true; it's badly run, disorganized, and exists for profit in spite of the crap the owner spouts.
