Finally arrived in Vientiane after yet another epic overnight bus journey. We were told that the journey could take from 29-30 hours, but luckily for us it only took us a mere 20 hours! However, the bus didn't have a toilet and the driver stopped for a toilet stop, he just literally stopped on the edge of the road and you had to get out and pee in the road! I couldn't bring myself to do it, so just fell back to sleep! Men have it so easy sometimes!
The Border crossing was a bit scary ad we lost the group we were with and me and Vic were walking around the Laos/Vietnam border in the mist, in the hills, still half asleep! All ended fine and we arrived in sunny Vientiane yesterday afternoon.
We met a good bunch of people on the bus and all got a guest house together which was cool. As it was Halloween it would be rude not to go out last night! We all clubbed together and bought loads of vodka red bull for about $1 each and played drinking games! Me and Vic painted Curtis's face and actually looked scary, in a good way! Haha The night was eventful as Tom something in his eye( he said it was sand, even though we were no where near a beach) and Captain Fun cut his finger open trying to open a bottle if cheap whisky! Men! Ha ha
So we all came home and the girls were all administering first aid on the poorly boys! Think they were just being wusses to be fair!
Anyway, leaving for Vang Veing in the morning with all the others to go tubing!!!!! Can't wait for it! It's going to be so much fun!!!!
