I lost my Lonely Planet guidebook this morning. 

It’s my own darn fault. On and I were visiting Wat Sop after we had been to Wat Xiang Thong and set the book down to put on my shoes (after we had been inside the main temple structure). I just left it there and forgot all it about it after I had put on my shoes. 

I can imagine that some tourist must have come across it, looked around to make sure that no one was going to claim it, and then took it. 

I hope it came in handy—for whoever found it—while they were visiting Luang Prabang. 

I sure missed it later that afternoon. 

And I just bought it last week.
