So I watched a BBC TV show about Laos last night. It was called the World's most dangerous roads or something.
Anyway, it involved two frumpy middle aged white women driving from Vietnam to Laos .
They spent an hour wittering on about absolute rubbish, but the scenery was good.
Things I noticed:
They drove past a brothel, and they probably have no idea how popular these places are for men looking for very young girls.
Bombs! Everywhere! Exploded and unexploded. A legacy of the B52. Some guy reckoned it would take 3000 years to remove all the unexploded bombs from Laos. I can well believe this as here in the UK WW2 unexploded bombs are still quite common.
Laos has probably been wiped from the collective mind of Americans as the US fought a secretive war in a little known country. And it's still spent very little on cleaning up its mess.
Laotian women look nice.
Laos is a beautiful country and relatively unspoilt (well apart from the UXB's).
There was also a bit of the show set in Vietnam. I think I need to go there.
Has anyone here been to Laos?
I did a bit of Googling after the show. Wow, I was amazed at the losses the US got - those F4 Phantoms really took a kicking from SAM's and the like. Warfare has changed a lot if you compare it to Gulf War 1.0 or 2.0.
Vietnam looked pretty similar to Southern China, especially the bad driving!
The houses made from bomb shell casings were pretty amazing.
