Don Det, 4000 islandsDecember 10, 2014 in Laos ⋅
Since Monday we are in Laos. We got on a bus in Kratie and made our way across the border where we only got ripped off for like 2 USD for the visa which is fine.
Our first stop is Don Det, a small island within the 4000 islands in the Mekong. We stay at lovely mama piangs guesthouse. The food is great, the rooms are nice, the internet is unstable and mama is the best. We spend the days doing nothing and then usually head to the other side of the island to see the sunset with a couple of beers.
It seems to be customary to meet people on the bus getting here and spend the days here together. We have done the same. Adding other acquaintances it makes for interesting combinations of nationalities at dinner. Yesterday there were Germans, a Norwegian with guitar, an Austrian girl, an Israeli, and a Swiss one, a brit, a French, a Polish, us 2 of course and Mama. Good fun!
Been there, Don Det!Read more
