When I got at the bus terminal in the capital, Vientiane, a guy said to me, “Where are you go, sir?” I did not say anything, because one of my friends in New Zealand told me,” Don’t believe people speaking English in poor countries”.
One of the greatest changes is happening in the antarctic. How will you think about a baby penguin, when you see it in the photo above? You will say, “It’s absolutely cute.” or something like that.
At 7:30, I got up and went down to meet a French guy, who I had seen at the station. He turned up late and ordered a cup of coffee before getting into a tuktuk. When he was drinking coffee, a tuktuk driver went into this restaurant and sat on a table.
I decided to go to Khon Kaen where it takes 8 hours from Bangkok toward north by local train. I paid my ticket for 399B and also bought a bottle of water (10B), a snack (10B) and a pan cake (10B). My budget is 15$ (= 500B) a day, so I’ve already been nearly broke.
At 3 am, I finally got to Bangkok, but one of my Thai friends didn’t turn up. I decided to stay over the night in the airport, before going into the city at 7 am by bus. After exchanging 50 US$ for 1600Bahts (1$ = 31B), I took a shuttle bus for 150B, which was a bit expensive for me. In the bus, I saw an Italian man with a big blue backpack. He was going to Pakse in Laos.
The Beijing Airport was not very nice. When I got there, I had no idea what to do. So I asked an officer about something, but she was talking to somebody on her mobile.
Have you watched this video, which shows a Canadian girl is making a peach about environmental issues at UN earth summit 1992? When I watched it, I cried but I don’t know why I did. I was just impressed and shocked. She was only 12 years old at the time.
My flight took off at 2 pm. I’m heading for Beijing. At this midnight, I will be in Bangkok in Thailand. Just 2 days ago, I went back from New Zealand to Japan and stayed at shabby accommodation near the Kansai Airport before leaving for Beijing.
