couldnt get on the blog for a few days internet connnection is dodgy here as is the ellectricity! so arrived on tuesday in vanmg vieng and went tubing on wednesday which turned out to be as crazy as id heard.yo9u hire a massive tractor inner tube then get taken to the launch point 3km out of town, get into your tube a and float down with the mountains all around is really beatuiful. of course there are bars all along the way obviously they have zip wires and massive slides into the river and one has 2 massive mud baths where everyone was trying to play volleyball in them so funny, the zip wires wer to high for me but one of the laso guys doing some amzing flips and stuff,spent the whole day there and floated back down the river to the town at night time. did the slide but everyone laughingbecause i waszooming down and then just stope, twice! so my frineds waiting to see me come flying of the end and just stood up half way down the slide and had to jump off! qiute high but had no choice! was all good fun but needed the next day to recover.
today have just been by the river there a few bamboo platforms where you can dangle your feet in the water and read and fall asleep and stare at the mountains and fall asleep and eat, very relaxing by the river but abit crazy in the town. theres bars with massive tvs playing films and friends and stuff all day and night! the people who live here get so sick of them blasting out! and lots of bars altho all shut at 12 so things dont go on too late.
staying in a house with 3 other rooms, is a very happy man form norway that owns the house and a few bungalos on the river. just me and a german girl staying in the house at the mo but mayb a spanish couple moving in tomo, have own shower and he lets me have it cheaper cos im on jy own (is a double room and usually you have to pay it all yourself anyway).
dont no how long i will stay maybe have a few more days by the river, tomo going to a differnt spot further up. went out for really nice indain tonight very tasty!
lots of love rachx
