Bad place to break a shoe…

Last week we walked to the top of a pretty big and spectacular waterfall near Luang Prabang in Laos when Sheena’s sandal broke.

Now these weren’t just any old sandals. Oh no, according to the dodgy market we got them from in China, these were “Genuine Ugg Sandals“, “straight from the Ugg factory” and had “real sheep’s wool lining“.

Anyway, the point of the story is that sometimes cheap fake sandals from China can last 5 months, but don’t go walking up massive staircases in them because you might get stuck.

* This blog post is dedicated to our friend James who knows how it feels when things break unexpectedly. The poor chap lost 3 pairs of sunglasses in Thailand when they got:

  1. Crushed in a door
  2. Left in a taxi
  3. Melted to his head and then snapped while being unstuck
