PostHeaderIcon Happy New Year

Blah blah blah. Hello. I'm now in Vientiane which is the 'capital' of Laos. To give an idea of how small and crap it is... imagine a more run down version of East Kilbride being the capital of Scotland (the population is 5 million here).
Yesterday was rubbish if I were to be brutally honest. We got up at 6:30am to catch our bus which was then delayed. Then we spent a solid 11 hours on this old piece of Korean crap that bounced its way down the dodgy mountain road. It wasn't bad but we were both knackered by 10pm and waiting for midnight seemed like work. The town was empty anyway and we attended some thing sponsored by Tiger beer. Joey is passed out in the room whilst I failed at buying a book and getting a tea since everywhere is closed. We leave for Bangkok at 3pm tomorrow on a proper sleeper train rather than the same brutal experience as last time. Cool... we'll probably just eat for 3 days and I might get some cheapy cheapy dental work done since I can't be arsed in Japan. Cheerio
