Plain of Jars..

... such are burial chambers that preserve the body. There is not definitive reason for them or how they were made. As often some jars were over 2m tall with holes all the way down it would be a great achievement to create one even with today's tools, technology and methods. The other thing that puzzled me was these jars are solid stone with no source for mining them anyway near the sites meaning they would have had to be transported??

He mentioned to me that the others on my bus were ...

It was quite refreshing not seeing that many backpackers as we were probably 2 out of maybe 40 in the whole city. We found a motorbike that we were going to rent for the following two days to do some exploring on. The next day we woke up pretty early and boy it was chilly. It was definitely a change of pace being in a higher elevation and not in such a humid area. We decided we were going ...

... man practically slammed him between the door and the car) and sped off. As far as I knew we hit the jackpot when it came to **** hole hostels. Bargain bums are on the up and up. To end our night we thought we would walk to the night market and grab some food before heading back to our hell hole. After ordering some food in the sheltered night market the power went out and we were in complete darkness for about 3 minutes. I wish I could make this stuff up but ...
