sorry for no writing on the internet in vang vieng it kept crashing evertime i tried to log on. so anyway left vang vieng after a few days lazing by the river. is a really pretty area but is so built up already and everywhere you look their building more guesthouses or bars or bungalos. but along the river is very quiet and some nice spots to get a few days sunbathing in and can swim in the river which isnt deep but do have to be careful as fast flowing and you could easily end up the other end of town before you knew it.
got a bus to the capital yesterday and slept all the way which was nice after 8 hours traveling to feel refreshed on arrival!was only supposed to be 4 so not looking forward to tomos journey which they already said is 8! ate by the river last night which was nice the town is very quite actually lots of the basr and resturants empty duno why, tonight think i will go for indian at a place round the corner from where im staying. sharing a room with a german girl i meet in luang prabang and bumped into last week somehwhre.makes it cheaper think she is travelling with me tomo then i dont no what. i am on a mission to the far south to 4 thousand island in an attempt to find something that feels like laos, is quiet and cheaper!very suprised that its more expensive than thailand but then again have only been to the 3 biggest places i think so try 4 thousands island. was going to stay in laos for christmas but now think i will go back to thailand and have christams on a beach! mum tells me its very cold at home aaaahhhhhhhh im sorry il try and catch some rays for all of you!just off back into the sunshine now
lots of love rachxxxx
