    The plan is to still go on the 1st. Just got informed that i need a yellow fever vaccination . Ho0efully it wont put me of wanting to shag asian birds. None of the clinics in vientiane have them i was just about to hop in the car and pop over to udon for one ( using my last land crossing visa) when someone pointed out that i wont get the immigration card that should come with it. Now ive heard the UN clinic here does them. ( thought the UN must be useful for something) waiting for them to open so i can call and check. If not i have to go to bangkok.

    She is waiting your arrival! Possibly a bit thigh heavy.



    What sort of mine is it, established or new, western or other managed?

    Good luck, you'll have plenty of fun, as always.

    We used to have those when I was a kid in Africa. You couldn't fly to some countries without a current certificate in the Yellow Book. the countries we visited appear to no longer be in the risk zone but the more northerly you go it becomes an issue now.

    when you arrive in bangkok from africa you need to go to the health booth before immigration and let them tick your immigration card - they don't check anything , just look up from their mobile phone

    Can't be all bad. Don't forget this girl is of Sudanese extraction...I think. Though maybe a little more Westernized than what you'll see in Sudan.**



    lulu would be on that like stink on shit.

    ^Highest HIV/AIDS infection rate in North Africa and the Middle East. Enjoy!


    Took another look. What the hell? The one in the jean shorts would be worth a roll of the dice.

    Good luck. How are you paid, in your home country or Laos bank? Or is it a brown bag of crinkled Sudanese Pounds every Friday?

    I'm just trying to find out how you glob trotting workers receive you wages. Local payment or offshore to a place specified, presumably in ones contract. How much and where is irrelevant to me just the norm, if there is one.

    If it is secret don't break it for my benefit.

    Everyone should experience working in an African shite hole for a spell. Puts the world into perspective.
    Even if you only stick it out for 8 weeks, it'll be a health farm for you and your beer belly will go.
    It'll be an experience, good luck with it.

    it varies from company to company but for example when i worked in Lao for an aussie mining company who later became chines my contract was negotiated in Aussie dollers, this was a big mistake on my part although i was still in front by paying Lao tax only instead of the hefty aussie tax, later on this situation righted itself a couple of years later when the aussie $ suddenly was on a par with the USD and for a while there it was even about $1.15 this resulted in a massive take home pay for me with the exchange rate difference . Now the aussie $ is back to those shitty days again im happy to get USD salary.
