First day back in Laos
3rd Dec, 2013 at 11:23pm
 
I feel like I'm in my homeland. What a great place with great people. Love the villagers here. Anyone down in Pakse and want to meet up? Probably also going to Vientiane and Luangprabang. Hell yeah, feels good to be back. Lao Pride Worldwide

I have no camera unfortunately. Spent the day learning Lao and teaching English. Lao people really are the kindest and most welcoming in all of Asia.

What are the best books for learning Lao? Help! Should I just formally study Thai?

Both Lao and Thai are tonal languages so no book is as good as learning your Lao language skills from talking with Laotians because Lao is their mother language.

Depending on what you want to learn Lao for, many people find the language irrelevant but it's up to you. English is the language that the "Generation Y" in Laos are so desperate to learn, and it's more important than Lao or Thai.

I have many Lao relatives who are married to westerners and they speak English with each other.

I'm only 21 so learning the language shouldn't be an issue. I'd get a Lao girlfriend but I have to marry if I want intimacy. Otherwise I have to pay off the police 5000USD which I'm not willing to do. So many Lao girls want me to be their boyfriend.  Cheesy

Man wtf is with Lao men cheating on their wives. I know I'm ranting because I'm drunk but admittedly I make most of my posts after drinking 4-5 cold beerlaods. Anyways, the sweet lady running my guesthouse is so obviously being cheated on by her husband. I want to scream it to her but it's not really my business. And then today, I saw a married woman approach another girl who just turned 30 and tell her how her husband is cheating with her. Maybe in cowboy culture we really look down on cheating but this is a goddamn disgrace. In Texas, we'd stomp down anyone involved in a cheating relationship. I'm disappointed in Laos today even though I met the most beautiful girl of my life.

How do you know he is cheating?

She probably already knows he cheats, or suspect he's cheating. Some men in Laos would even go as far as admitting he's cheating and his wife can't do anything about it.

The guesthouse is probably owned by him, in that he is providing the capital for the business so his wife is probably tied up to his playboy lifestyle. In Laos, money makes men treated like a King.

"Disgrace" is an understatement. I know many Lao guys who cheat so your story is not an isolated incident. Laos is a country full of trashy people and I'm not proud to say that but I have to be realistic. Whether it's guys cheating or girls prostituting or corruption, there's many problems that's just too overwhelming to manage.

Now you understand what Laos is like, because you can see it for yourself.

Saovaluck, you sound too much like a man.

TC, just enjoy your staying. Don't worry about what you can't change. If you stir up too much, you might end up in the bottom of the mekong der. Google Sombath Somphone.

No, I'm a Lao girl and I'm angry with the culture of Laos so I may seem strong.

If tourists can see the dirty side of Laos then that really says a lot about this country.

The Sombath Somphone story is a prime example of the issues we have in Laos but it can't be discussed sorry due to the sensitive nature.
