We took a farmer's truck to a chicken barbecue in the country, passing rice fields.
Another bus ride brought us to the Golden Triangle where Thailand, Burma, and Laos meet at the Mekong River. The golden Buddha is the landmark. We took speedboats past Burma and spent 15 minutes in Laos. A visit to the opium museum completed the afternoon.
Before dinner we lit Thai lanterns in the parking lot, made a wish, and watched them rise into the sky.
