road to the capital

We choose a more challeging road to the capital, avoiding Vieng Vang and drunk tourists tubing on the river.
The alternative route goes through Xaignabouri and Paklai which have absolutely no tourist appeal. Refreshing. Unfortunately there is no boat from Paklai to Vientiane, it has stopped two years ago.
We spend three days in dusty buses, driving through hilly surreal landscape, eat in road side cafes, pee in the bushes, interact with locals and drink beer. Almost no English spoken.
