On the minibus ride from Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng…

The published time for the minibus ride was 5 hours but all travel in Laos takes forever so it’s pretty much a given to tack on 3 hours to any published time. Since all the passengers on the bus spoke English we typed stuff out on my blackberry to communicate…

me: these fucking old people keep complaining about how long it’s taking and how they paid for a 5 hour minibus ride. 
dasha: i think it both a product of cultural differences and age…this is why i insist on traveling when younger…
me: true but it’s just irritating. we’re in laos!
dasha: that’s why i travel with a fully charged ipod
me: ditto!
