Today i took full day to explore Vientiane sights. There are several temples, one golden pagoda, which is country’s main symbol and pkaced on every ads and all the notes, president palace and several museum. If speaking about notes, local currency is very cheap with lots of “zeros” in it and after couple days it’s still little tricky to find the right one, as 1000, 10000 and 100000 looks very alike.
I skipped almost all museums, but COPE museum. It tells the story of how Laos was damaged during vietnamese war. Still the country is full of unexploided bombs and only little progress to remove them was made. So thousands of people are killed and injured each year. This little and very sharp museum tells about the work of teams, who try to clear the remains of war and how does injured people live.
Later at night i went to the market near Mekong river and started gastronomical part of visit. I loved grilled meat, but typical noodles soup are not the best one. Little later some more about it as i got a list of things to try.
