The end of one of my trips. Suddenly, an idea to start this trip came out a couple of months ago and suddenly, this trip will end up.
When I got to the Phnom Penh, I took a public taxi owned by the local government to the city centre for 7$, which was surprisingly expensive there. Then, a driver took me to a hotel but not a guesthouse.
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.
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.
Lao will be one of the most famous tourist countries in the future. Even if the living cost grew up, it wouldn’t matter. The beautiful Mekong River, hundreds of temple and cheerful people would attract tourists.
