In Laos

We crossed into Laos today, and are now in the town of Luang Na Thang. The computer connection is beyond glacial, but such is the pace of things in these here parts. Tomorrow we'll do some motorbiking, and then make our way south after a day or two of exploring.

Despite a similiarity of countryside, the difference between China and here is stark. It's as if the 45 is now playing at 33.
