Lao Airline was really not good. I waited for 3 hours in a queue at the airport. A white woman finally got angry when a receptionist was doing with our tickets and registrations as slowly as a caterpillar crawling on a leaf.
It was the first time for me to get sick in this trip. I had a terrible headache all day. I had breakfast after checking out the guesthouse which I had stayed for 5 days. Then, I took tuktuk to the airport.
There is a funny thing here. The name of this guest house is ‘Joe Guest House’, but why? There is no western owner here. Probably, somebody’s name in this family is nearly ‘Joe’.
This is the last evening for me in Laos. Tomorrow, I am going to Cambodia. The Mekong River, the most awesome river I have ever seen, was saying good-bye to me, when I had diner by the river. I was looking at sunset over the river.
It was lovely weather. I tried to go to Buddha Park, but I gave up when I saw overcrowded people in a bus to that place. Although that bus was a little bigger than a van for 8 people, there were roughly 30 local travellers getting in it. It was absolutely amazing but usual for locals.
Do you like chocolates? Maybe, the answer would be “Yes”, I guess. We can buy those amazingly cheap and do not think about why those are so cheap. Probably, some people and children in Africa works for our chocolates by earning small amount of salaries.
In this morning, somebody stole my shoes, which annoyed me. Although it was sort of my fault because I left those outside, I wanted to blame that thief. Anyway, I had to go to the market at the city centre to buy new one.
Today was a meeting day to a worker. At 8: 30 in this morning, I went to buy a shirt to a morning market called Talat Sao at the city centre, because I had only two T-shirts with spots, which were not proper to meet people.
There is a difficult question. “Which picture above discribes a happy country?” It is obviously true that Tokyo is much more developed than Phnom Penh in Cambodia. However, we cannot say Japanese is happier than Cambodian.
