In memory of Luang Prabang

City of questions and solace. 
Temple window, Luang Prabang,
one year ago

"Cities also believe they are the work of the mind or of chance, but neither one nor the other suffices to hold up their walls. You take delight not in a city's seven or seventy wonders, but in the answer it gives to a question of yours.
Or the question it asks you, forcing you to answer, like Thebes through the mouth of the Sphinx."  
                                           - Marco Polo, Invisible Cities, Italo Calvino
