Vang Vieng


sunny 32 °C

We checked into the nearest guest house, as we were knackered and only had 1 hour before the world cup final was due to start. It was awful. The bed was rock solid, there was a big pool of water at the end of one bed, dirty, there was no sink. Needless to say, after watching Spain's successful diving performance, we woke up today and checked into another guest house. Seems VERY touristy (English as usual) here.

Woke up really late as we were still knackered. Decided to leave tubing until the day after. Saw guy we'd bumped into a lot, sold us his & mates rings for knockdown 20,000 (tight-fisted Geordie could have given us them!). What great fun, floating down the river getting roped into bars and drinking or playing mud volleyball, tug-o-war or riding the zip-line and swinging on the trapeze thing. Amazing!

Suffering big-time after 3 days in 4 tubing. My neck is really hurting and back isn't too clever either. J has a few injuries too, like very scabby/infected knees from the tug-o-war.
