We had a hard time in Vientiane, the capital of Laos. After a very long day of cycling we arrived there and had a lot of difficulties in finding a cheap place to sleep, so we left it after a couple of hours and camped. In the morning we visited the Buddha Park – a nice and small tourist destination not far away from Vientiane.
Cycling towards Vietnam was easy. We could enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Laos and watch people cultivating rice and celebrating life.
While passing through one of the Laotian villages we got invited to a wedding! Both the guests and the couple were already quite in the party mood (with a lot of help of Beer Lao), so it was easy for us to mingle them.
We cycled a lot on very quiet roads, some along the Mekong river.
We had a good reason to be happy as well – we cycled 10000 kilometres during our journey! Not bad for 9 months, including one month of rest in Kazakhstan and one month of staying in Hong Kong and Macau. Don’t you think?
