Arrive in Vientiane, share a lift into town with another Aussie we met on the plane.

Walking around town trying to find a place to stay, the Lonely Liar and my travelfish ipod app aren't doing us any favours. Prices are wayy higher and some places aren't even there. As we find out later this is common amoungst other travelers we meet and just decide to take the info as a brief overview of each town and then do our own investigating.

Enjoying our first Beerlao.

Stayed here 4 days went on a few visits to Temples, local morning markets which last all day, ate lots of local street food cooked on dodgy cans with coals inside roasting anything that flew, walked or swam and yes I mean everything and they don't waste anything it can be eaten some way! The food on these stalls was amazing... well most of it! Most of this food is served on sticks so you can just wonder around and eat all night, chicken and pork ribs were among our favourites. 
Met an awesome crew third day in and had a decent drinking session of Beer Lao with Damien, Chanel (Ireland), Matt and Kara (England).
