Talking to one of the diplomatic staff staying at our hotel we were told there had been influx of around 5000 people for the conference and around $20 million spent on new vehicles to ferry them around. Seemed senseless in a country with so much poverty, not to mention airport closures, roads blocked off and restricted access to some areas.
Our last full day in Laos and Vietiane was spent looking at temples , I wanted to get a t shirt and printed on the front
" What Wat is What"
We looked at headstones something my wife does (maybe it's because she's in the medical profession
But I did find them interesting
Thats about it for Laos we flew out next morning for Cambodia were I had an appointment with Dancing roads
for a 5 day off road through the Cardamom mountains, which will be written up shortly.
As usual here is a vid of the days riding, Hope you enjoyed the ride report.
