Awoke in a pitch black room to the blaring sound of the alarm. Unusual as we are used to sleeping with no curtains (don't worry we are not overlooked) and therefore usually wake (at least in part) to the morning sun. Once I had overcome the confusion of where I was, we got ready for the day ahead. Breakfast was simple - bread with butter and jam followed by bananas. It was then time to re-board the boat.

  • Shuttle bus between borders: BHT 25
  • Lao visa: USD 30 + USD ...

One queue to apply and hand in passport and another queue to collect it and pay, sounds simple but as always with these things nothing ever is. With only one person working at the visa counter, one at the paying counter and around 75 people queuing to get a visa of wasn't going to be a quick process. After almost 2 hours ...

... where several tables were placed together making it a long rectangular one.

And what do you think I ordered? The usual I’ve had so far, aside from pizza of course! I ordered a plate of fried vegetables with noodles. I definitely didn’t want to take any chances and get sick around here. Michel tasted the local beer which was quite cheap! Fifty ...
