Vientiane is small and so is Vientiane Airport. The timetable tells us there are only 10 regional flights today. One of them is ours to Phnom Penh.
This is one of these rare occasions that I can make some massive disadvantage of my Indonesian roots. I show the drivers my pokerface and tell them that it's no use to fool us. We know the routine from back home. I mean, I am no tourist, I am an expat from Indonesia and his son ("I don't carry a backpack, see, just office stuff so drop your prices"). Believe it or not, most of the time this trick doesn't work, here it does. While we watch our first fellow passengers/prey getting attacked by a wild flock of taxi vultures, we are in a tuktuk on our way to Phnom Penh centre. For only USD2.
