useful items in the bathroom of a Lao internet cafe

October 12, 2010 § 1 Comment

Once you leave the toilet room (yes,  a room with ONLY a toilet, no paper, no bum gun) you enter the room with the shower and the basin.

Of course, only the most useful items can be found inside:

Compact Foundation

Tweezers

A pen

Who would be so silly to put soap and a towel in a room whose sole purpose is to wash your hands and your body?

 

I am currently sitting, looking a little forlorn, with a bunch of other Falang in an internet cafe. We are all glued to our screens. Outside, it is is raining. Pakse doesn’t seem to leave any one feeling impressed. All look irritated and on the verge of cursing this town, and its miserable weather.

I have enjoyed my short stay, but don’t feel I could stay any longer…. My favourite experiences have been speaking (the tinnny amount of Lao I know) with the locals, who seem rather perplexed with my pronunciation and simply say: “Vientiane, bo?”

    The existential joys of travelling!!! Because of the temporary stay, the local world and its mysteries dont reveal themselves, one perches on the edge of community, not long enough to commit as the journeyor must move on!!
    But sometimes the essence can distilled in one fleeting moment!!
