... and another 12 in the first half of 2012, in light of the deaths in mid 2012 everything changed in Vang Vieng; The majority of bars where shut down, the drug menus disappeared and the rope swings and slides were dismantled. We heard Tubing still happened here but that the town was slowly trying to return to attracting tourists for its real draw card, the scenery. Out of curiosity we decided to check it out. Vang Vieng town is an utter **** hole. It is so obvious that it boomed quickly ...
So we spent about 3 weeks poking around the north west and central parts of Laos and we had a blast.

It was so odd, especially when there children come charging in and Kayley crying.
The guys finally turned up ...
... It was a great dinner in a brilliant company!
Before it got too dark we drove to the blue lagoon where we spent the rest of the night drinking beer and chatting with the hitchhikers in the traditional gazebo.
At 6 AM we went for a swim in the lagoon and stopped by the Viman restaurant for breakfast. After grabbing a few bottles of refreshing radler for the road we were ready to continue our journey to Pakse, 800 km away.
