In Laos, our VISAs expire every 30 days. Therefore, we soon needed to take a trip to the Thai/Lao border. We hopped onto the van and crossed the border on one side and again on the other. Two hours and 30$ later, we had accomplished our mission: we were proud owners of renewed VISAs. As a treat, we stopped at the magnificent Xieng Khouan Buddha Park for lunch on our way back to Ban Sikeud. The scenery of the different Buddha statues was an incredible sight.
