We spent a couple of hours weighing up our options for onward destinations down in the covered courtyard with copious cups of tea. We decided that we would visit Laos and considered various options of transit. Neither of us really relished the idea of the three day/two night option, as had heard horror stories of the night stay in Pakbeng. The flight costs around £150 each but would get us there in a hour - decisions, decisions.....
We got an idea of costs, so set out to the city to see what some of the agents might be able to offer. Most of the agents were able to get us a better price for the flight; there is only one a day to Luang Prabang
We didn't really do much for the rest of the day apart from stopping in various eateries for smoothies and snacks. In the evening we once again visited the Vikiy Sist cafe ( that we have since learned is in fact Vigiy Sist) and were warmly welcomed by the more madder of the sisters. Once again we bought banana cake a huge croissant for breakfast tomorrow.
Back at 'My Mum Home' we flicked through the TV channels searching for any channel speaking English. We ended up watching an American film called Pineapple Express. Although a tad violent in places, it did make us laugh.
