Stepping away from where I'm comfortable, I find myself walking along a dusty road towards the river. Pagodas gleam in the distance across the fields. Strangers smile when they see me and some, concerned, ask me beh thwa leh (where are you going)? This road is not on a map, but I am not lost.
Throughout our journey through Loas people kept telling us how boring Vientiane was...well we thought it was amazing. Ya you don’t need a 5 days in the city but #vientaine has a lot to offer.
We battled through the blazing heat and rented bikes for 1.5$ and scooted around the city. #watthatluang was our first stop and ended up being one of our favorites. Entry for a foreigner is 2$ a person. We met a monk who explained the culture and his daily life. Did you know monks only eat twice a day and collect all the food they will eat from locals as offerings? Laos we miss you! You were truly amazing
