The city of Vientiane doesn't have as much character as Luang Prabang. I realized that I used the word amazing a lot in the previous posts about Laos, this marks the place where that stops. I don't have anything bad to say about the town, it just felt like your generic SE Asian semi-big city.
Vientiane is on the Mekong river and Thailand is literally right on the other side. Here though, the Mekong isn't cutting its way through mountains, so it's not as spectacular of a view. We stayed only two streets off of the river in the middle of the Farang area.

|Four brother and sister kittens who we fed chicken to. Yes, these are four separate kittens.|
|A common sight in Laos, the cauldron trash can made from old car tires. Fitting we were there just before Halloween.|
|It kind of looks like the Seine. Kind of.|
|A little wine, beer Lao gold and fried rice - ain't nothing finer|
