Luang Prabang > Vang Vieng, Laos

This is the rest stop on the way... on the left is the one road we took... and on the right over that pile of dirt is where people did their business.  We fit 12 people in that one little mini van, which in the end went pretty quickly thanks to our driver taking the fast route.  Our fellow passengers there are stretching their legs and getting some foggy air on the sheer cliffs edge there.  Can't say it wasn't a gorgeous ride.  We all (plus a few more) fit into one took took within each town too - Mik ended up hanging on the back as he couldn't fit in the actual vehicle with us.
