"I'm Totally Wired. Totally Wired. I'm Totally Wired. Totally Wired. Can't you see?"

Vientiane is the capital city of Laos, situated in the Mekong Valley. It is also Laos's largest city. The estimated population of the city is 200,000 (2005).

Compared to the hectic, bustling capitals in other Southeast Asia countries, Vientiane's deliciously relaxing atmosphere makes it feel like the small town it is.

After you've done the round of temples, the best thing to do here is wander down to one of the riverside beer gardens, kick back with a cold Beerlao - the Lao national beer - and watch the sun set over the Mekong.

Alternatively, you could visit one of the local markets and admire the wiring.

I experimented with levels and color burn on the sky. I hope it's not overdone, as you tend to get carried away with these things.

Cheers.
