Goodbye Vietnam, hello Laos!!!
What a trip!!! The Gran Final Act of Nam was one in style!!! The bus was as local as you get them: packed fully with all sorts of mechandise and too many people (just place them on plastic chairs in the alley), all the luggage on the roof and we were good to go.
After a bit a fight between the busdriver some locals and the 'white delegation' (if you try to put too much stuff and people in a bus tenstions get heated sometimes!!!) we took off. Sleeping was impossible and after a long night we hitted the border -after 2 hours of waiting it actually opened- which took forever.
But we were in Laos at last!!!
Still another 10 hours to go though. Vientiane seems like a nice place, worlds apart from the craziness of Hanoi (no hunking or busy traffic), the Laos people are more laid back and friendlier than the Vietnamese counter part. 2nite I'll grab another bus (what I am thinking?) to Luang Prabang which seems to be a very promising place. After speeding to Chang Mai and back to Bangkok. Who sad I was escaping The Rat Race with this trip, hahaha?
Now and then the travel tiredness hits, and its more difficult dealing with all the hastle. But luckily there's always sunshine after the rain and things like the following link help out. Enjoy!!!
I'll just leave you with this pearl of life... Love,
