SABAIDEE! After the super long journey by overnight train (with lots of blunders and blur-ness), we finally crossed Nong Khai to Vientiane! In a span of 6 months, Vientiane has changed! Quite a bit in fact. Hah. More newly-built guesthouses, nice road signs (with English), lots and lots of internet cafes, and *gasp*...IMPORTED FOOD such as Kettle chips in a newly-renovated gourmet kind of minimart! Signs of modernity in welcoming of SEA games perhaps? Oh well, globalization spares nobody. BUT still....... We're looking forward to dinner and BeerLao with the Nong duang school teachers tonight, and we're excited about Vang Vieng! P.S: Its gonna be cold at night =\ Internet-cafeing in Vientiane, YY and Brenda
