Vientiane, Laos – 25th SEA Games

Postcards-Laos 011

Our time in Vientiane was extremely limited as we used it as a stepping-off point on the way to someplace else (north to Luang Prabang at the start of the trip and back to Nong Khai, Thailand, towards the end).  I did manage to buy one postcard marking the 25th Southeast Asian Games which had been held in Vientiane the previous December (2009).  This was the first time the competition had been held in Laos and also commemorated the 50th anniversary of the first SEA Games (held in Bangkok).  I hope to return to Laos soon (quite possibly in 2015) and will try to spend more time in the capital of Vientiane.
