Last night at dinner Matt informed us that there has been a landslide in the north of Lao and that there was a slight possibility that we may not be able to drive to the north of Lao for our home stay. So today we were meeting in the lobby to decide on what to do. Not feeling the best I really didn't care what was decided I just wanted to go back to bed, which is what I did until about 10am.

The next day I wondered around for most of the day then I met Susan and Marie in the lobby so we could go and get a massage We walked in and immediately we were so relaxed. This place was stunning. Looking through the menu of options. Susan went for the foot massage and a shampoo and blow dry where Maire and I decided to get a facial and a massage. Sitting there waiting for our turn. Marie and I were given these really nice herbal teas, then Marie and I were taken in the room together, which was really nice and had a curtain in between the beds.

Later that day after doing pretty nothing all day I met the group across the road for pizza and a few Beer Lao's, when we were informed that there had been another landslide. A few of the group were talking about driving out there anyway and seeing if we could still get through but I think that was the Beer Lao talking as most of us didn't want to risk it so we decided to fly straight to Hanoi instead of the 6hr drive the first day then the 12hr drive the next. Hmm not really an easy choice to make.

After dinner we were still wanting to experience more Beer Lao as we just had quite gotten a taste for it yet so we went to check out a roof top bar. Where we stayed until the early hours of the morning which in Lao time is only 12am.
