Savannakhet

Written on: Saturday January 12th, 2008

The ride up to Savannakhet was the most interesting part about this stop. After leaving Champasak early in the morning to catch a bus, which supposedly was an easy task of flagging one down at the roadside, we found that no buses wanted to actually stop for us and ended up hitching a ride in the back of a pick up with a chicken (that incidentally didn't scare the shit out of me, it just caught me by surpirise, that's all!)

The truck dropped up off in Pakxe where we then caught a proper bus on to Savannakhet. Just a one night stay here to break up the long trip to the capital, Vientiene.
