I arrived at 11 PM last night, slept until 7, had breakfast (twice, one omelet at the hotel, and then some awesome noodle soup and duck up the street). Was intrigued to notice that for some reason Thailand drives on the British side of the road. I guess they have to sell all those right hand drive cars somewhere. I stayed near enough to the airport that I had the pleasure of low flying planes all night. I'm not sure if I can actually say I've visited Thailand, any more than I can say I was in the Air Force (inside joke). Anyway, here are a couple images. One from the stupa across the bridge from my hotel, and the other from the airport.
Now I'm off to explore Vientiane a bit. First on the agenda, a real cup of coffee.
