11-19th Mar
Today we had a long boring drive to Nong Khiew. On the way there we stopped to have something local. We looked around and saw some fried baby chicks. After that we never had something local to eat, we just had a banana sandwich. When we finally arrived we looked for a hotel and found a very clean one. When we got to the hotel there was an amazing view of the mountain and sunset. People on the river were fishing by slapping the water, picking river weed to eat, and taking locals on motorised dugout boats. Jonathan

Laos etiquette /-

Hands and thumbs together level with the eyebrows - praying to Buddha or addressing a Monk.

Hands and thumbs together under the nose - addressing parents.

Hands and thumbs together under the chin - addressing elders.

Hands and thumbs together under the chest - addressing friends. Sophie

Yep, thankfully the destination was worth the drive. Laos countryside has been slashed and burned to the max. Only a parental observation and not a judgement.
