The weather yesterday was perfect for swimming! So Hong and I and some of Hong's work friends went to a river about 40 minutes outside of Vientiane. It was excellent!
I noticed a flurry of activity in the sand and realized that it was a group (a clan? a pride?) of butterflies!
Perhaps I shouldn't have disturbed them, but having tons of butterflies swirling around you is slightly magical!
I just googled it and found three results: 'a swarm of butterflies', 'a rabble of butterflies', 'a flutter of butterflies'. I can't decide if I like flutter or rabble better! (Results were found here and here.)
