The road was great like a super highway compared to cambodian roads. There were a few landslides but the road was mainly unaffected. Were there was rubble on the road it was quickly being cleared away. There were only one or two spots that had a rough surface due to lanslides.
There is still a lot of Anti American sentiment it seems in Laos. I dont blam them really. I dont like a lot of what they stand for or the way they go about things.
