A wonderful fantastic shot!
An excellent presentation by nice framework through glass(?), so tasty color coordination and soft focsuing in the details as usual.
Thanks for your sharing finest work and have a good Sunday!

Default To holmertz: re the 3 Nagas Hotel

Hi Gert! Thanks for the kind comment. Yes, I bet Luang Prabang was different back then, but I think you are right, most of the buildings were already here then. I read on the net today that this building is a century old....perhaps anyway. They actually have 3 buildings in use, all close to one another, and have quite a tourist operation I guess, although like I said in my notes, over my budget! Now that Luang Prabang is a Unesco World Heritage City, I imagine it must really shine compared to 38 years ago. But of course the only fear would be that it may just become so over-run with tourists to make it not enjoyable anymore. So far, it is still very pleasant, but I must say, there certainly seems to be a very large number of very expensive cameras dangling around the necks of many tourist I am seeing! And now, as opposed to 2006 when I first visited, there are lots of ATMs! As to the Citroen I do see it around town sometimes, and I read today that it is used to carry customers back and forth to the airport. It is in mint shape! But also, I think you are right, it’s very presence does give the impression of elegance for sure! The hotel also has a cream colored Mercedes from the 1960s I think. But now, with the Citroen, the Mercedes seems to pale by comparison. Keep up the excellent vintage uploads, and take care, kind regards,
Steve
