Mission to the Lao People’s Democratic Republic + Personal Deviation : Day 2 (see previously 6.145 Phak Boong Fai Daeng…).
In Vientiane for a tobacco-related mission, follow-up to the mission that had brought me here last March (see generally 6.067 Salmon Zosui). Arrived last night, a day early to do some prep work while hanging out in the city today. The mission will be conducted over a single day tomorrow. Heading back to Manila that night.
The late afternoon snack at the WNTD celebration was the best thing that I ate all day. Stir-fried pork & basil, topped with fried egg and served with rice, essentially the same thing as kra phrao, but with less sauce and more aromatics. Way better than what I later ate for dinner and certainly more meaningful.
