My visa run to Vientiane, Laos was rewarding. I met a lot of people from different countries. There was a lot of confusion too about my nationality. A Laos or maybe a Vietnamese mistook me for a Vietnamese when I was in Mukdahan, Thailand, another border town between Laos and Thailand.
Then while I was in Vientiane, a Korean asked me if I am a Korean. Another Korean which sat besides me on the bus gong to Nongkhai thought I was a Japanese.
By the way, the statues above will greet you when you enter the Phat Tich Temple in Vientiane. For more of the photos I took while in the temple you can visit here.
