We were on a bus again!!! This time our Journey was taking us from Luang Prabang, back South to Vientiane. This journey once again emphasised the problems the lies the Thai Authorities told us about needing onward tickets and such for a second visa in to the country, of which we are now certain is a lie, from the sheer amount of people who have shaken their heads when we've explained the story!!!
I seem to be getting a bit better at this whole bus malakey though as I found it less awkward and uncomfortable as previous journeys. As a group we've agreed it's because I was taking Valium, attempting to put me to sleep, instead it seemed to just chill me out, and give me about 10 minutes sleep in postions funny enough for Linnea to start taking photos!!! The journey also seemed to go faster than expected!!
In Vientiane Linnea had organised to meet up with her newly broken up with boy friend Simon, which I can't exactly say I was looking forward to. When it came to it, we met him at a restaurant, a nice restaruant in an area of the city we hadn't seen when we were last here, even though it was just round the corner really!!!
It was quite awkward, I had no idea how to act, Jade felt the same, and we were both fairly quiet. When we'd eaten Linnea and Simon went for a walk to talk things through and Jade and I attempted to play pool but the wait was so long we gave up and went looking for a different place with a poool table, failing. Instead we found a shop seliing bad rip offs of Westarn makes, and then a shop selling ice creams.
Linnea ended up staying at Simons guest house which was very nice as our three person room was very small!!!
