VIETNAM | Thursday, 22 Nov 2007 | Views [720]

Laos

LAOS | Saturday, 10 Nov 2007 | Views [843]

There was a bit of a con going on with the bus to the Laos border, in the fact that we were told we would arrive at a reasonable hour in the morning. Instead they dropped us off at a guesthouse at 3 in the morning. We were too tight to pay so we got ... Read more >
