I had a good day exploring Vientiane, the capital of laos. it is filled with lots of intricate temples. one entertaining highlight was patuxai, the city's knockoff of the arc de triomphe that is built entirely out of concrete that was donated by the usa for construction of a new airport. as a result, expats refer to it as the vertical runway. there's a sign in front of the entrance saying that they regret that it is even uglier up close than it is far away. at least theyre honest.

i'm at the airport waiting for my flight to siem reap, cambodia, so i can explore angkor wat with my friend elisa!
