Prelude to an adventure

Hi everyone! 🙂

Finally I got around to have my Lao pics ready for posting. I will do an update on that travel adventure in a future blog. Until then I’d like to introduce you to some things uniquely Lao.


The above image is a price list in lao kip for something. Can you guess what that “something” is? Look at the numbers: 30,000 – 110,000. Are they crazy? What could cost that much? (Thai readers may find the characters distinctly familiar… )

For a little hint, please also take a look at the picture below: Lao money These are some of the banknotes currently in use in Lao PDR. “Some”, I say, because I forgot to include the 2000 denomination.

I’ll be back with more, take care until then.
