Flag of Lao Peoples Dem Rep  ,
Wednesday, April 4, 2007

We arrived here in the evening with our crew from the minibus.  Not much to say about this place except it has a fantastic Karaoke bar and endless beer Laos.  After a large night of extremely poor singing to songs that no one actually knew (the rare few in English), meeting loads of locals and drinking far too many Beer Laos, the gang boarded the slow boat much earlier than required in a very jaded state. 
The slowboat itself is indeed very slow with the smallest and hardest bench seats ever invented, luckily the views and good people well and truly made up for this.  The trip was two days down the Mekong River with one night spent at Pak Beng (a dodgy little town in the middle of the Mekong).  The trip went reasonably fast, with time spent playing cards, listening to music, reading books, writing in journals and drinking more Beer Laos.  This is a fantastic trip and we recommend everyone to do in their lifetime.
