What you've been doing

Well, we made the mammoth 24hrs on a bus from Hanoi to Vientiene - it really wasn't that bad! The scenery was worth the trip! I have hardly heard a good word about Vientiene, but it is not as bad as all that either - the city is tiny for a capital city, and there is not loads to do but I have filled a day with seeing the city from the top of the ancient monument, wandering around the market and sitting in cafes - well with the beer at around 25p for a bottle, what can you do?! From what I have seen so far, the people really make the country. The hotels are not as nice as the Vietnamese ones - but then I guess you get what you pay for! I think a day or 2 is plenty to see everything here!
