Tuk-tuk tour

And a broken stool

A lot of sightseeing was in order for today and to help accomplish this we decided a tuk-tuk was in order. It took over 10 minutes but we managed to haggle down a tuk-tuk driver to a reasonable price. Expert negotiators we are!

Our stops for the day were:
- That Dam: The Black Stupa
- Patuxay: Victory Gate, the Arc de Triomphe of Laos
- Pha That Luang: A gold covered Buddhist stupa

Then back to the hostel to wait for our 530pm pick up for the sleeper bus to Vietnam. Whilst waiting for this pickup, Jo managed to befriend a child called Kola and I managed to break a plastic stool just by sitting on it, falling on my bum in front of everyone! We also stocked up on food from JoMa to take on board the bus with us. Neither of us were holding onto any hope that the bus would stop anywhere half decent for dinner!

I'll let Jo tell you about the "joys"of the 24 hour sleeper bus. I'm still bitter that we've had to resort to this mode of transportation!!
