Where I stayed
Our bus driver tried to go through but backed down at the last minute. He said it was too narrow. We thought we'd have to hitch a lift back to Phonsavan, but then a big truck went through and our driver's ego was hurt..
We all got off the bus and he tried a second time and then we were through!
We were all happy for another 5 hours, and then , at 7pm, our bus just stopped. No fuel and a problem with the clutch!
After 2 hours trying to fix it, we finally managed to drive slowly, and we arrived in Paksan at 11pm..
We were 'orange' from the dirt, and exhausted, so we forgot to celebrate paddy's day..
The next morning we discovered a huge black bear in a tiny cage, just outside our room...Weird.
