This is one of a couple 100+ year old temples I visited with a young monk named Kit who approached me at the first one I wandered in to. A nice young man with a decent command of basic English (he teaches it to young kids) who wants to learn from me on Skype. If he follows through, maybe I'll learn some Lao too. I also took a futile trip to the bus station to buy a ticket for tomorrow, only to be told I should come back an hour before departure to buy it. I wonder what happens if the bus is full? Fortunately, I found a travel agent in town who sold me a ticket in advance. Tomorrow I go south to Tha Khaek for a day and then on to Pakse and Champasak.
I like stop signs in different languages, don't you?
