As we drove across the tarmac, I was a bit surprised to see the propeller driven plane we were taking to Vientiane, the capital city of Laos. My seat looked right onto the propeller of the plane. It was a pretty clear day so got to see some great views of Laos and Vietnam.

I sat next to a German guy who runs his own micro-brewery in Hanoi. As drinks came around on the plane, he said I should try a Beer Lao. He said his beer was good, but not as good as Beer Lao. It was still only around 10 a.m. but I thought why not.

The streets are much quieter here than Vietnam and the weather is much hotter.
