From the embassy, we walked back to the area that we are staying in. A lady in line from Thailand had told us that the Pizza Company had the best pizza - even better than Pizza Hut in the US
In the evening, we had drinks along the river with a fellow traveler and then met up with another lady for dinner.
Today (Wednesday), we were woken up by Buddhist chanting and drumming from the wat across the street. There is something special going on at the wat with monks and nuns from Cambodia and someone said Burma, congregating there. Quite a unique way to wake up!
After breakfast this morning, we went to the Buddha Park which is 25 km outside of the city. We walked for about 20 minutes to the bus station and then found the number 14 bus. The bus took about an hour to get to the park. This was our first time taking a public bus in Asia and it went off without a hitch.
The Buddha Park is quite a strange place
The highlights of Vietiane were getting our Thailand visas for free and the Buddha park.
Tomorrow we start our tour down to the very south of Laos. The internet in the capital hasn't been the greatest, so I'm guessing that it is going to decline as we travel further south.
