Thailand, Myanmar & Laos (The Golden Triangle)

3 different countries were on our list today. We started out be leaving Thailand and heading in the Myanmar which used to be called Burma. Strangely halfway across the bridge all traffic switched side without any apparent direction. We then walked through the local market where vendors where hacking up live fish, eels and chicken feet. Mmmm, doesn’t that make you hungry! After spending a long while clearing customs again…we headed south the true Golden Triangle. We ate dinner overlooking the famed location where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos meet. After lunch we took some long skinny speedboats over to officially walk on Laos soil. Once there we had the choice of many liqueur bottles filled with pickled cobras as well as other handicrafts which quickly depleted our money supply. Finally we came back to our hotel for a swim with pizza poolside. We hope all of you are doing well and wish you were here!!
