    Vientiane, Nong Khai pics

    Went up north to Nong Khai and Vientiane for about a week before Songkran. Here are a couple photo albums, taken with my original iPhone:

    Nice pics Dave. I was a big fan of the Mexican place by the river in Vientiane. Good food at very reasonable prices

    Speaking of that, I went in there one night and ordered crepe for dessert, as I'd eaten elsewhere. I have a thing about hip-hop, rap, techno, etc. Well, when I sat down, they had something reasonable on the large sound system. But after I ordered, on came so hip-hop garbage. I asked if they could put on something different: Same as here is LOS, the guy acted as if it were completely impossible to change anything on their music system. So I left.
    Oh, was interesting that there was a sprinkling of (none too attractive, but friendly) ladies sitting around offering you to share their table.
    Obviously a popular place, but music is too important to me to be barraged with (what I feel is) crapola. Thankfully, there were other places that had better dining atmospheres.

    Nice pics. I like Vientiane and Laos in general. Want to retire there one day.

    I was just there last week. Here are a few more pics....bit of a ceremony with the family and a night out with the wife's friends.

    Good photos. Brought back some memories. I remember the last - and only time - I was in Vientiane was to get my Imm 'B'. It was around this time of year and it was great to be a bit cooler. Also, I'm a sucker for all that left over French influence.

    Great pics!
    Vientiane is without doubt one of my favorite cities in the world. These photos are making me think about a return trip on the long weekend...

    You have to upload your pictures to an images hosting site and then post links here.

    Ah those fussy restaurant DJs. Amazing how many businesses here have no idea about customer service.

    What site did you upload them to? Use something like photobucket, then your the IMG line of code to post it here.

    Love the atmosphere at the Tex-Mex! Lots of "ladies of the night", good food, and decent music, I think.
