Large comfy room. Huge basic bathroom. Large fridge & wardrode cabinet. No mossies. Convenient to town center & Khong River. Many parked cars for adjacent KAreokee Bar; but bar noise not noticeable. Had 2 comfy nights here. Other budget hotels were dumps.

After a long day in the office, there is nothing better than going to get a back massage. A nice way to unwind. And only $7.50 an hour!

... increasingly eager to escape the town boarder and see what lay beyond. I wasn’t given much notice, as per usual everything is done on whim (so it would seem). At 9.00am I was told the car was leaving now for the field if I would like to join. "Sure!" I said, not wanting to pass up the opportunity. The car in fact did not leave until 2.00pm. The combi-van, with four of my colleagues on board drove northeast out of Savannakhet.
We stopped off at the DAFO office near ...
