The City Inn is in a good location but we got off to a rough start with the hotel saying I had broke the key and I owed them $10 before I could get a new one....

Just not a good wat to start by having to argue that I was not the cause of the problem. Good breakfast buffet; quiet rooms.

... evening. Not the most comfortable of welcomes! The next day my cough had gotten pretty bad and so I stayed in bed for the morning while the others went to Bhudda Park which houses lots of statues that were done by a single monk. The guys told me that there were all sorts of creatures and monsters and all manner of strange things there. However I didn't miss out on much and before long we jumped on a coach and headed for Vang ...
... in the middle of the town with a temple on top. It was a pretty long hot walk up, but at the top we were rewarded with some nice views out over the Laos countryside.
Next we headed back to the hotel to try and find out the location of the UXO centre (turns out it was nowhere near where we were looking), then grabbed some lunch before making our second trip to try and find the centre. This time we did find it. It was quite a walk out of town, but easy enough ...
