Stayed here one night. The town is a muddy road that sort of paved next to the river. Had sticky rice with fish curry and found a cat to keep in my lap the whole dinner. I don't know if thats weird but there's so many kittens around that I think my average is snuggling with 3+ a day. If the bus stops and there's a break, the cats always find me and jump in my lap. I think they know that I love them. I'm like catwoman, they flock to me. Anyways, found a room for $1.50 a night. ONce I got off the boat there was someone from every guesthouse yelling out how much kip per night. I think I got a deal. The room did have some roaches but not as many as I would have thought. And after having roaches crawl on my while visiting Karen in the Marshalls I think I'm over any fear I ever had.

The next day 8 hours down the river, with a few stops because of torrential rain. The scenery was absolutely beautiful.
