Tuktuk, el lemino, está casi listo para pasar la larga noche invernal—todo lo que él necesita es pelaje caliente para revestir su nido. Cuando una kamik afelpada resbala fuera del trineo de un conductor Inuit, ¡TukTuk está de suerte! Pero, mientras la arrastra hacia su hogar, Putak el oso polar, Aput la zorra del ártico, y y Masak la caribú, obserban el premio de este pequeño lemino y se lo quieren quitar. Tuktuk piensa rapido, pero ¿podrá él ser más inteligente que los otros animales y convencerlos que una kamik afelpada no es buena para nigún animal que sea más grande que un lemino?

The Lao People's Democratic Republic (PDR) is one of those almost-undiscovered travel destinations that is too quickly becoming a stop on the main tourist trail. It's a land of incredible contrasts - beautiful scenery, raging rivers, poor infrastructure, great food, fabulous UNESCO world heritage sites, and incredibly poor people. The country is slowly awakening to the possibilities of adventure and eco-tourism, but there is still a long way to go. Still, Laos is a country not to be missed. You can see waterfalls that pass more water than Niagara Falls (in the rainy season), cycle around islands in the Mekong where life is almost unchanged from 50-100 years ago, visit hundreds of Buddhist temples and thousands of saffron-robed monks, trek into the hill tribe areas and ride elephants, kayak in the many rivers, visit former royal palaces that are now living history museums, and so much more. There are no true beaches - Laos is a landlocked country - but there are miles of rivers that are as big as lakes after the rains fall. For some reason, Laos still seems to be off the radar screen for many travelers. It arguably offers some of the best cultural immersion possibilities with the least outside influence in all of Asia. Laos is officially landlocked, but with the Mekong River running virtually the entire length of the country, there's no shortage of water access. You can float, or ride a power boat from the far north to Vientiane (and beyond) if the water is high enough. The sunsets over the river are nothing short of spectacular. Luang Prabang is a small village with enough temples to accommodate the needs of a large city, and no two are alike. The ride from Luang Prabang to Vientiane is truly beautiful - rugged, steep and thrilling. Along the way you can break up the trip by stopping at Vang Vieng (Van Vieng) or other sleepy towns. Vang Vieng is a backpackers' haven that has managed to keep its small town feel. Before you leave Luang Prabang you should head north to visit the Plain of Jars to see where the ancestral Laotians lived and how they were buried. The Plain of Jars is a sight to behold and well worth the trip. The Laotian mountains are rugged and largely pristine.The people are warm and friendly, and the baguettes, pastries, and café au lait rival anything to be found in France. It's easy and relatively inexpensive to get around whether you choose to fly, take buses or mini-buses, hike, bike, or float down the Mekong River.You can visit dozens of Buddhist temples in and around Luang Prabang. The bus ride through the center of Laos between Luang Prabang and Vientiane is breathtaking; the scenery is marvelous and rugged. You can stop off in small villages, find a guide, and hike the backcountry, or rent a bike and ride around Luang Prabang. You can drift down the Mekong and watch the spectacular sunsets. This is just a start. All of the details are here in this guide: how to get around what to see and do, the hotels, the restaurants, the culture and history. Plus there are color photos throughout.
