As lats night we just sat in the crazy truck doing nothing , Chris and I  started to talk about scary movies , which was not a good idea. I had nightmare the whole night :(

Our bus left at 8 30 am but according to yesterdays experiences , we got to the station at 7 30 am ,  still the bus already full of Lao , full of juck , we decided to pay 10 kuai more to get a nicer one .

I met a Lao who can speak Chinese in the bus , he is 62 years old , his father is Chinese and mom is a Lao . He is very happy to talk to me , and he told me a lot of interesting things . He is really proud of his children , he has 8 kids , yes in Laos , you can have as many kids as you can . and all of his kids went to university and now they are all doing a good job . he told me there is a son who is working in the back can make 500 dollars a month , which is a really good salary in Laos .

In Laos , a lot of girls get married very very young , as my age , I saw a lot of them are milking their babies on the street , of course , i have been asked many times , have you married ? and then the next questions is Do you have a boyfriend ? In Laos , you can have a lot of boyfriends or girlfriends as long as you are doing eye-to eye , not mouth-to mouth , lol .....

He t really misses China and he thinks the life in China is so much better , as Chinese of course we started to talk about food , I told him I really don't want to have rice noodle or sticky rice any more and I think they are actually expensive compared to china , a noddle is 10 kuai here . he said it because in Laos everything has to  import from other counties .And he likes Chinese people have so many choices to eat different food . Local Laos don't have money , they just eat sticky rice with some chillie .

Another interesting thing  we talked about is woman in two countries , In Laos , girls get married so early and not a lot of they even went to school, and Laos man still think man is  more
important than woman , like the other day , out tour guide throw me a cooking dress and told me to cook  all the man a dinner , and i saw his wife been doing all the cleaning the whole day and he thinks this is the way it is . Lao people think woman should stay home and cook and clean and have babies also take care of the babies .

I am so happy that I am a woman in China .

after eight hours we finally got here , I really wanted to have some Western food but we ended up in a real Chinese restaurant , and of course we felt like in China again , people are yelling so loud while eating , and smoking , and asking you to drink with them , oh , Chinese people ....
