A little later we will (hopefully) head to Vientiane Laos. We got our tickets from the same crooked TAT office as the bad hotel here, so we are a little nervous, but we are going to assume the best Wish us luck.
Hopefully the next hotel will have better wifi and I will add photos to these posts.
UPDATE: Yes, the flight went off without a hitch (we got in early even!) and the hotel in Vientiane is unbelievable. We are going to fly to Luang Prabang tomorrow (would stay here an extra day, but the hotel is full tomorrow)
