I took a ridiculously long "bus" ride to the Mekong River where I caught a tiny boat to Don Det one of the many islands on the river between Laos and Cambodia.
I essentially alternated between sleeping and reading in a hammock for a day and half prior to drinking and dining at night with complete strangers.
Then I went Kayak for the first time ever. Not sure if a first time kayaking experience should be on the Mekong River during the high season, but it was awesome.
Details to come soon.
