With our Thai visa running out we broke for the border. Two buses and 15 hours later we arrived in Mukdahan and waitied to cross the Mekong via the Thai-Laos Friendship Bridge 2 to Savannakhet in Laos. The bus journey was long, if uneventful but we were amused when the girl across the aisle from us snuggled into a blanket and placed a panda hat on her head.
While I barely slept, she seemed to have had a relatively undisturbed night. I want one. (Girl with a panda hat on a night bus in Thailand)
