Vientiane, LaosFebruary 8, 2017 in Laos ⋅ ☀️ 86 °F

The bus ride there was surprisingly better then the last one with full reclining leather seats. We luckily got the last two spots on the bus and Rupal got the best seat in the house right in the back with a clear view of the road watching the driver take scary sharp turns and take over cars on the mountainous road.
