6 Figure Dinner

Our exploration of Vientiane (capital of Laos) was offput by a torrential downpour, the worst of which easily lasted for over 2 hours.

One amusing little anecdote (at least to the two "falangs"): we ate dinner at a great little Lao restaurant. The bill was K 104,000.00. Granted, the exchange rate is roughly 10,000 Kip to the USD, but it's still somewhat shocking to see 6 figures on your dinner bill :-). Interestingly, mixed drinks made w/ imported liquor are ~ 2.5x more expensive than most entrees.
