Just wait until you find out you can't see the cards being introduced and realize you are being cheated.


Hahahaha but it's probably not as big a deal that the cards come from China in that part of the world 😂

I have made a few changes, I am not going to Pakse, Laos because the journey there sucks and the journey from there to Bangkok is a long bus/train trip. I was debating whether to go to Pakse anyways. This way I can just fly from Savannakhet to Bangkok at the end of my trip.

Also I was talking to a friend of mine who grew up in India and she told me not to bother going to Jaisalmer. The main attraction is camping in the desert and riding camels, both of which I did in Israel and I wasn't a big fan of riding the camel. She says there is nothing else to do there and it is quite far off the beaten path. It's a 12 hour train ride each way.

I'll send someone else over there who knows stuff about the oriental world and wouldn't die of starvation.

You won't die of starvation in the orient but you may well die of "additives" such as insecticides, fusel oil, diesel fuel, etc. Resort areas and border towns would be my worst fears.

Why would resorts and border towns be your worst fear?
