The ride to Vang Vieng took us back into the mountains the way we had come.  Lindsey found it more miserable than the ride to Phonsavan.  Apparently so did many other people on the journey.  The old woman sitting next to me serenaded me for several hours with her coughing, gagging, spitting, and then every twenty minutes or so with the sound of vomit and bile being purged into one of several plastic bags she had requested.  The road didn't bother me, but the sound and smell left me a little queasy.
However, the toughest part of the ride was how miserable Lindsey was.  She had taken her Dramamine a little late and it wasn't working.  She took a second one pretty early in the ride, but she was still miserable.  She had tears in her eyes and there wasn't much we could do to assuage her misery.  During a brief stop we found some mint gum, which is supposed to help.  But since a double dose of powerful pharmaceuticals wasn't working, we didn't hold out much hope for the power of Bubbalicious.
