Vientiane, Laos

Today I visited Buddha Park, a park with dozens statues of Buddha, mixing Buddhism and Hinduism. Quite an odd place, especially for the complete lack of explanation. I changed hostels today as well. I rarely do so, but as it was written in the vandalized bathroom of my previous hostel: "If you don't like where you are, move. You're not a tree". Wisest words I've read in a bathroom stall.

Vientiane, Laos

Vientiane has to be the most laid-back capital I've visited. There's almost no traffic, and you barely see people on the streets. Today I visited several of the city's tourist attractions, which are easy to do by foot. Although pretty, they were quite rundown and not well maintained, compared to its more tourism savvy neighboring countries.

Vientiane, Laos

I love seeing locals at the night market: chatting with their friends while eating Lao BBQ or popping balloons to get a teddy bear for their girlfriends. It reminds me that this is not a tourist attraction, it's an inside look at their day to day. Today I spent most of my day sitting on a minivan, traveling from Luang Prabang to Vientiane. I'll explore Laos' capital tomorrow, but for now I just want a bed to sleep in.
