Vientiane Apartment

We couldn't get back into our old apartment, which would have been ideal as it was just around the corner from the company Head Quarters.  So instead we are located 3km away on the other side of town near the Patuxay Monument.  So it’s a 10 minute tuk-tuk ride to get to and from work.  On the other hand its only a 5 minute bike ride into town.

The apartment is in a complex with 2 blocks of about 16 apartments each.  We haven’t really seen any of the other residents.

We have a one bedroom apartment and the rooms are relatively modern and spacious.

The access driveway down to the apartment is typical Laos rough dirt road, with potholes filled with broken up building materials from the building site next door.

We have a miniature balcony which one of us at a time could sit on and look at the view of….a large truck/machinery storage yard.  It doesn't look great, but it’s really quiet.  No truck noises, just men with non-power tools banging away at engines – so you hardly hear them.  The large building to the left of the truck yard, is a very large school, and they do make some noise but only during school hours.
