Where I stayed
I am in Phonsavan and certainly glad i decided to see this part of the country, it's a different province and its lovely! With big rolling green hills, and pastures..reminds me a lot of the lake district in england actually.. both gorgeous! And amongst these rollings hills are the plain of jars, 3 different sites. They are over 2500 years old, quite large, around my height... just big rocky jars, around 600 of them i think.
The site only opened to any visitors in 2004 due to UXO (Unexploded Ordinance). Did you know that Laos is the most heavily bombed nation in the world ever?
So i am loving Laos for its spectular beauty in different regions with different landscapes and its people, very friendly. I am now making my way to the Vietnam border with a 10 hr bus ride tomorrow, 2 more stops in 2 different towns (im hoping) before i make it. Hang on...
