Up early and took Bangkok Airways to Bangkok, waiting for our Lao Aviation connection at the airport. Compelled to check quality of Thai massage in airport salon. Moving on to Vientiane, capitol city of Laos, this afternoon. Will meet with textile friends for dinner tonight and tomorrow revisit textile galleries of people that we know!
Dinner tonight on the Mekong with owner of Silk Moon Textiles in California. Janet and her daughter are finishing up a shopping trip here in Laos and heading to Cambodia to pick up more wares. Compared notes and shared driver contacts. Met up with Sandra's friend, Boreth, a professor at University of Utah in the fine arts. Fun time had by all.
