Well, I am back in Vientiane after a whirlwind trip. It feels like I haven’t slept in years.
Quickly, this was my itinerary:
Ho Chi Minh City to My Tho, Vietnam, by AUNILO bus
My Tho to Chau Doc Vietnam by Vietnamese van, 7 hours of HELL, including a ferry crossing of the Mekong and going through Sadec, formerly the hometown of Margeurite Duras.
Chau Doc to Phnom Penh Cambodia by Boat
Phnom Penh to Siem Reap by bus
Angkor Wat by Bicycle and tuk-tuk
Siem Reap to Vientiane, Laos, by airplane.
Then I cam back friday, taught a class, went to a wedding, and have been going non-stop since. Back to work today!
More pictures coming soon!
