Hotel In Vientiane close to Thai Embassy

I will be traveling to Vientiane shortly to get a 60 day visa for my Pinay girlfriend. Any advice on a decent and reasonable hotel close to the embassy would be appreciated, as well as travel costs from the bridge to the hotel. I haven't been to Lao for a while.

Where Can I buy a Automobile CD Player and Speakers?

I would like to find a shop that sells Automobile CD players and acessories such as speakers, wire, etc, one that has a good inventory of different brands.
I would rather install it myself, not because I don't trust the installers, but because it will give me something to do.

Parapropter in Udon Thani?

Sitting at a friends house out near the army base last week and saw someone fly by in a papraproter, or a powered parachute.
Does anyone have any information on this? I s there a club, group or individual that does this in Udon or around here?
I'm seriously interested in getting information on this.

I took my Thai GF to the US for about 6 weeks a few months ago. Because my home is close to the Mexican Border there were certain places (checkpoints) where she had to carry her passport to show to "La Migra", Customs, Homeland security, Border patrol or whatever they have morphed themselves into.

Talenoi, Sounds like you may have been targeted, for what I have no idea, I do not know you. But while cats can go anywhere and get food dogs can usually be limited by a fence. If someone had an idea to clean out the neighborhood more animals probably would have died. When I owned my own property an...

Muscle, after flying in those C130' s for year I'm surprised you can hear anything at all. And yes those dog collars do work, I had a mastiff once that was as dumb as a box of rocks, and the collar would give him two barks before it gave him a jolt. After awhile he was as quiet as a church mouse. I ...

I can't say that I have ever gottten into an argument, I agree with the logic that it is a lose - lose situation. But I have disagreed without raising my voice. A case in point. I bought a fax machine at Makro, it didn't work so I brought it back. I explained to the clerk that it failed to work, the...

Raided by a COMPANY? This does sound weird. They don't seem to have the authority to take anything out of a private business. Sounds weird, but this is Thailand.

Australian Shepard

Bud, I have never heard of an Australian Shepherd dog and I have spent a few of my 62 years on farms in Australia. Maybe you are talking about Border Collies (sheep dogs), but apart from the border collies I do not know of any long haired working dogs in Australia. My Thai landlord (ex- Sakon Nakho...

That was a ------ joke. Messing with a guys ride, tools, or woman (maybe not so much the woman) is intensely personal. I hope this person is "sum na na'ed".

I'm sure that it takes adjustment on both sides. But as a friend of mine says "My fantasy is her business".
I've already been down the farang highway, I want it my way, and mostly thats what happens.
Just don't do something that makes then lose face and generally things are ok.

As a retired builder thats comes from a hot climate, I'm going to disagree with some of the advice. Putting insulation directly under the roof is of little or no value. You need to heavily insulation directly above the ceiling, on top of the drywall or whatever, and make sure that your attic space i...
