Don Det

Champasak, Laos

Following Vang Vieng we had 1 nights stay in Vientiane in which we visited COPE, a centre dedicated to providing prosthetic limbs for Laotians who lost limbs during the secret bombing of Laos during the Vietnam war. From Vientiane was a sleeper bus overnight to 4000 Islands in Southern Laos, next to the Cambodian border.

The 3 main islands are Don Khong, Don Khon and Don Det.. Em and I choose to stay on the quieter island of Don Det which has electricity from only 6pm - 10pm... the 5 days that we spent on DD were recuperation for Emilia, still suffering from the knee injury sustained on the Gibbon experience. Highlight of the days were watching the FA Cup final with some local chaps and a day of biking riding around Don Khon including a visit to a waterfall and a swim in the river.

Cambodia is next on the hit list.
