Day eleven on to Vientiane and Korat
We arrived at the airport in plenty of time to catch our flight to
Vientiane and walk over the border back into . Going through the many visa check points was a pain in the neck, especially having to pay going in and then out of country, but eventually we made it through and met Short Shorts waiting with the van. We then drove to Korat and arrived just at dark. There's not much to say about Korat, other than it appeared to be a dirty, busy little town that could have easily been missed, except for the little bar we found after dinner. Interesting points were the 2 lambs in a cage in the lobby of our hotel, open sewers, the Dewar’s girl, and 'First of the Day' toasts. Our hotel room was sparse to say the least, but we were entertained by the dancing ants and geckos. Morning would not come too early.
