The capital of Laos . Its the largest city . Aproximately , 700 000 people . I got by bus , from Luang Prabang , first thing in the morning ! I was feeling really bad ! I was bringing a diarrhea from Luang Prabang . I met Bocha , an Uruguayan guy , who I met in Luang Prabang . I was lucky that I could spend the morning with him . A few weeks later , he passed away in the Himalayas . His family had time to go there and say goodbye to him . Hard time for all of them !! Its a pity , he was 21 years old … Always happy and smiling …
I met Ferran a Spanish guy , who I met in Luang Prabang . All the travelers follow same route ! We visited the city , there are many temples around . Vientiane in my opinion , is very bored and quiet capital . There was a market during the day and night , where you can get nice food . I spent 3 days in Vientiane , until I got better from my diarrhea .
I visited the Arch of Triumph , great views !! It was saturday , we saw some weddings in the city . They saw us and they invited us for a beer .
We visited Budha Park , 25 kilometers far from the city . Its really nice but its very small . There was a Sleeping Budha , in the seashore of Mekong River , very close to the border check point with Thailand . We went by bus and we came back hitchhiking . A woman drove us , until the market , in Vientiane . I went back to my hostel , I got my backpack and I left to Pakse , South Laos , by bus .
An interesting thing !! On my way to the Bus Station , I was walking and suddenly , I saw a car lost his tire . It was very noisy and dangerous !! I got the tire and I gave to him when he stopped . It was an old drunk man with his grandson , who was crying . He couldnt speak English , but he was trying to say , if I can put back the tire . But I couldnt help him , he didnt have any tool in his car . So , I left to the Bus Terminal .
