It's been pointed out to me that my last post said lots of negative things about Laos: the UXO, nothing to do in Vientiane, Vang Vieng being dusty and boring, etc, etc.
I'd like to add that I really like this country! The scenery is spectacular, the people are friendly and cheeky - they love a laugh. I am already planning on coming back some day. There are a number of companies that do motorbike rentals (like a Honda XR or TransAlp or a Yamaha TTR) which I think would be the best way to see the country. It's not the cheapest way to get about, but there are not that many sealed and non-potholed roads so a good off road bike seems to be an excellent idea.
I hope that has put things right! :o)
(Thats all for now)
