Eight Days in Laos….Days 4 through 7!

By now, I’ve established a daily routine…

Up at about 5am to work on the computer until sunrise.

Head out to the market

Eat at Minority Restaurant.

But, I’ve also started to talk with Minority Restaurant owner, Vanxai about Jamaica, about Saipan, about Laos, about America, and about the tourism industry in Luang Namtha. I offer to update the webpage for the restaurant a bit to make it a bit more appealing, and give a few tips on places to promote the restaurant on the web.

He also teaches me about the eco-tourism/adventure business and we agree to keep in touch upon my return to Jinghong.


Make sure you go Kayaking with Vanxai. That’s his passion!



Tomorrow morning, I return to China!
