What makes friendship a friendship?
@lily_maninin is my friend. I met her at a youth forum in Manila, The Philippines last November 2017. Trust me, I had no chance talking to her at the forum and only helped her once to lift her suitcase up walking out from a venue. Yet, our friendship is lasting till I come to Lao and meet her there.
I lost my phone in Lao -- the very first day of four within my trip. I was so bloody moron and made her worried of me. I contacted her via Facebook messenger through my laptop. Fortunately, it's still on me and my homestay provided quite strong Wi-Fi.
There's an unforgettable thing I had when I was in Lao. It was when she introduced me to her friends @loudakps & @nut_laungvilay and they were indeed humble to me though I was a stranger to them!!
I, undoubtedly, fall in love with Lao and its people ever since!
Oh, if I just had more time...I surely will spend my time any longer there. I do thankful to meet you guys, looking you up as my best friends in Lao.
Really, missing it.
Things that make you go “huh”: Laos edition. •
Built in the 1960s using funds and cement supplied by the US government for the construction of an airport, the Royal Lao government instead built this monument. Named Patouxay, it literally translates into “Gates of Triumph” and was dedicated to the soldiers who fought to liberate Lao from France in 1949. Learning this bit of history we thought it was a rather interesting choice considering it resembles a certain arc in Paris... #thingsthatmakeyougohmm#patouxay#vientiane#laos
