      We hired a driver to take us to the 3 main jar sites to see a small portion of the approximately 2500 large carved stone jars spread out over hundreds of square kilometers. No one knows the origin of the people who made them, why they transported these heavy objects great distances, or what they were used for. The archaeological theory is that they were burial jars which is somewhat substantiated by bone fragments. Another is the more ...

      ... follow special procedures if they went back to their bases in Thailand and Cambodia with full payloads. And most couldn't be bothered to follow these procedures so they dropped their bombs anywhere, to lighten the load, to not have to follow procedure.

      During this time the King of Laos was driving around in cars donated by the US government. The war was kept secret for six years but not, presumably, from the King of the country the bombs were being dropped on. That's one hell ...

      270km in 8 hours. Average speed 34kmph or 21mph in old money. Are you beginning to see how hard Laos is to get around? And this in the dry season?

      Actually I'm a bit ****** off about the mileage. It won't reflect in my home page stats which show how far we have traveled around the world. It only works on the basis of 'how the crow flies' and so will probably only credit us with less than 100km. The 270km comes from the many, many mountains we had to skirt ...

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??

      ... our back tyre had blown! We pulled over and all got out of the minibus so the driver could do what he needed to do. The back left tyre was torn to shreds - that's what happens when the roads are as bad as they are in Laos. The driver was right onto fixing the tyre by getting the spare one from underneath the minivan, pulled off the old tyre but when trying to attach the new one it wouldn't fit! He tried everything but it wouldn't work. He then tried the front tyre seeing if he could ...
