|Left Phon Savan at 8:30am by bus and arrived in this fair city at 5:30 to check in at our favorite guesthouse where we stayed previously, nice folks and very convenient as well as cheap($2.00/person)! We will be able to get our visas for Viet Nam processed by Thurs. 8am so will leave at 8;30 for PhonSavan to pick up Jake and head for the border on the only weekly bus into V.N. on Friday! We also picked up our malaria pills at the post office - special thanks to Daphne Cant who did much tracking and shipping stuff to get it to us on time - so all that remains is the wait here for visas! Rain today(acually last nite) so don't know if we will go to the waterfalls as previously planned. All for now...I cannot upload pictures here more than one every 5-8 minutes and at a cost of 20 cents a minute it is not worth it. Internet in Viet Nam is supposed to be much faster so will try in Hanoi!
