Vientiane

We’ve been here less than 48 hours but we love it here. We spent time wandering around temples, enjoying traditional food, and chatting with locals. We’re currently on a local bus (8000kip/80cents) to Buddha Park where we just witnessed a woman barter her ticket price with something wrapped in a banana leaf. The conductor was hesitant (we were gonna pay the rest for her) but he reluctantly accepted. We got to the station by tuktuk, for which we bartered as well. He tried to send us with his friend on a bigger tuktuk but I said, “No, it costs much more money!” He laughed and said, “You know!” I give him props for trying! Can’t wait to see these Buddhas!
