Hanging out in Vang Vieng

The internet access here is really expensive so I must be brief.

This small little town in the mountain has been completely transformed by tourism.   The streets are lined with guesthouses, restaurants, bars, TV bars, and travel agencies.  It reminds me of Pucon, the town in Chile where I climbed the volcano.  The surrounding mountains and rivers, though, are beautiful.  I'll probably spend another couple of days here exploring (bicycle rentals are cheap) and then keep heading south.  I'm taking plenty of photos to show to you, but I don't have the cable to connect the camera so you'll have to wait until I get back to China.
