    Dear Moderator,

    In the FAQ section for Laos, I saw this entry: "How do I avoid peanuts?"

    I don't quite get it - what's wrong with peanuts in Laos, that we should avoid them there?

    Thanks.

    Some people have pretty serious peanut allergies -- hence the FAQ.

    That sid, they go great with a few ice cold bottles of BeerLao ;-)
