Its like Thailand 25 years ago, thats how the south east asian fan will describe Laos go back 15 years more and you have Pakse, a small town in south Laos at the border of Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.
Most of the visiting peoples are buisness man, Mafiosi, drug dealers and backpackers.
That's where Eliane and me decided to make a new start, well actually it was my decision Eliane just followed me.
I'm not going to go too much in detail on how I found the job or how we broke up, but for the story's about Laos and for the few peoples who might read it I have to write down a list of important things about Pakse:
