Been distracted by all the jobs that didn't get done while I was away.
Left Pak Lay after a breakfast of banana's and and three in one coffee's.
The morning was cool and misty

A stop for fuel then head out

no problems so far and the cooler temp was welcome.

It didn't take long for the first smoke break

The road is of good quality and the scenery excellent

In fact the distance turned out to be about 50ks less than the map indicated
so we arrived in Xayaboury early at about lunch time, so thinking it's to early to check in to booked hotel we looked for somewhere for lunch and found this place

local food, even does takeaways for local businesses, don't speak a word of english, My Loation sucks so out with the book, managed to get chicken (kai) with sticky rice and vegetables and some kind of soup
After lunch off to the hotel only to be told no rooms government officials take all.
Get on the phone to James at remote asia who made booking and pre paid. so after much talking , we have rooms on floor under renovation, the guy came in and reconnected the electricity while we looked on unimpressed.
