    Team XI works in Vientiane (very last chance this year)

    VEDI, LGTC, Sunshine School (Vientiane)

    To enter Lao P.D.R. this fall, Team XI needs a) a flight, b) permission to transit (in Vietnam or South Korea) c) "expert status" certified by the Ministry of Education and Sports, d) a 14-day hotel-quarantine on arrival (self-paid), and e) a good portion of courage and determination. The flights are the problem.
