Day two of the adventure was in many ways similar to the first - sat on your arse looking at stunning scenery, but at the same time trying to keep your mind occupied.
We spoke to an Irish chap who we'd bumped into yesterday at the Laos border before venturing onto our respective boats - ours (which was the faster of the two) left first today... But still arrived last.
After a pretty uneventful journey, we arrived around 6pm as the sun set on the distant mountains and after an hour or two of walking the streets, we'd finally found a guesthouse that wasn't trying to charge $35 a night! The merry guesthouse, which isn't that merry, but free water, bananas and wifi (which doesn't really work - surprise surprise) makes it worthwhile.
We ventured out to the night market to see what clothes, food and other items (such as snakes in bottles) Laos had to offer and picked out a beer Lao shirt for me - my collection is slowly building!
There's something about this place, I'm not sure what it is, but it just seems right.
