    It is easy to 'over-plan' a ride, and in Laos you can't go wrong when you are on a 250.
    When I am in Laos i try to stick to a province one at the time, but I always end up in LPQ.;)

    No they didnt tempt me at all. Im rather conservative when it comes to food. I tried “roo” burger in Aussieland and Lamasteak in Bolivia during my RTW trip, and thats about as exotic as I dare.
    Well - in Kyrgizstan I tried horse milk, both fresh and fermented and even horse sausage, but very small quantities though...

    You have not really been in Isaan if you have not tried rice rats. Very boney and taste good.:p
