Sam Neua & Vieng Xai, Laos, may 16 – may 19, 2011

The real highlight of my time in Sam Neua was the friendly people. It was easy to get into conversations with locals, without having to worry that they would ask you to buy something afterwards. ;) The climate was nice and cool at the altitude of 1200m. The famous caves of Vieng Xai are only an hour bus drive away and well worth visiting.
