Lock and Lao-d

Here’s some more from Vientiane.

 

There’s an arch called Patuxai in the city centre: The Laos took concrete donated by the French meant for an airport, and used it instead for an Arc de Triomphe replica…hence its nickname: “The Vertical Runway.”

Vientiane: more of a town than what you’d get from an “urban” capital city.
