We woke up at 5 AM. It was raining. We waited for the van to take us to the border. We exited Thailand and then with a 2-row ride to Lao border. There we acquired a visa (30$). Third ride to the shop.
I ate a sandwich with bread (Lao was a french colony, 30k LAK).
Changed $ for the shitty exchange rate (10$ for 70k LAK). Finally, they took us to the pier with boats.
It was crowded, we got the last seats in front. After some time we went to back where we met Adnan, Jazz and Bianca, and some others. The boat was a nice slow ride with a great view. Beer was 20k LAK.
In the evening we docked at, Pak Beng. We went to the Meksavanh guesthouse (14€ room), a nice room with a bathroom. We had chat with some french guys (ž). Next, it was time for dinner (55k LAK person). Jazz and Bianca joined us. We could put our music so Jazz and I chose Nick Cave and some old punk while girls were into Latin rhythms. We went for a beer (200k LAK) to Hive (one of two bars there). We played some pool (10k LAK), some dutch were there. Again, it was late when I arrived in the room.
