Southeast Asia Report 14: Joe Guest House in Laos

Joe Guest House
Joe Guest House

“A night in Laos”

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’. But it’s still funny. When this owner took phone up, he said, “No English! No English! I don’t know! I don’t know!” A calling person must be an English speaker who found the name of this accommodation on a book, maybe Lonely Planet. Of course, everybody think this hostel has at least one English speaker. But actually not. It’s just funny.
