You should write a blog. I'm sure many of your fans would be interested in your thoughts.  ;)

I keep a video blog here:

Text based blogs are so cliche and boring to read :P

That being said, will probably take a month before I get up my vids of Laos. Laos actually isn't that exciting compared to Thailand, however . . .

Well, its a communist country, meaning everyone is extremely poor. The tallest Laos building I saw in the capital was like ~6 stories (not including tourist hotels). There are paved roads in the capital, and within towns, but most roads are dirt and hard to drive on. Roads dusty everyone during dry season, flooded during rainy season.

Seeing goats and chickens running around the city is pretty normal there. Mosquitoes came in clouds.

I was told that outside of the capital, if you were hungry, there was no food market to go to. Typically you'd go into the forest and eat what you find. Frogs, snakes, insects, wild deer, fruits, etc. The frogs tasted like chicken nuggets and the deer tasted pretty good ;D

That being said, one Laotian I met was interested in making robots and asked me for my business card :)
He is from a wealthy family, so he might be able to afford the $50 Robot . . .
