another sick contrast in laos was the menu. they served baguettes everywhere, in every streetcorner, all the small food wagons, in the bars, everywhere! and really good ones, with chicken, tuna, ham or cheese, mayo, cabbage, tomatoes and sometimes they even served them warm! everywhere else in asia, you get dry frenchtoast when you ask for bread.. so we where totally in chock when we came to laos, damn we were munching on those baguettes! and with a good cup of lao coffee it got you straight to heaven. thank you france for colonizing!
