Lost earphones in Vang Vieng! Can anyone look for them, whos heading there, please?

Posted by thomashuang on 13/3/2009 at 19:28

Hello, I lost my earphones in Vang Vieng, if anyone is heading there, could you please look for them? Last time I saw them I was in the tiny, deserted internet cafe across the street from Chilllao Youth Hostel, on the main road. It's a little north of the perpendicular street that goes down to the tubing rental. It's 200 kip/min which is the cheapest rate you can get there. It was pretty fast too. If it's not there, it might be back at the Nana Guesthouse, the newer northern one on the main ...
