Vientiane is a glimpse of what all of Lao will be like in the future! Proper boulevards, coffee shops, five-star hotels, shopping centres and loads of cars! I guess everywhere will just look the same one day. Especially if they let McDonald's and Starbucks in.
Nearly 2 weeks into the tour and a number of our group are suffering from illness. It's also incredibly hot 36°. But we are still having an amazing time.
We will be flying into Vietnam tomorrow and will soon be meeting up with our new traveling companions.
Funny story about Vientiane is that after the war the French gave them money to build an airport So the Lao people decided to build a "victory over France memorial" with the money instead.
