Writing station at One More Bar, 8:36AM.
I saw a sign for $10 a night room with AC, but the owner was not there. At the second mini hotel, a white man at the desk told me he had no vacancy, but I could get a room the next day for $35 a night, so I thought no way! At the third place, a Lao lady said she had rooms for $6 a night, so I had her show me one. Satisfied, I asked what she would charge if I stayed ten days. She promptly lowered it to $4.14 a night, so here I am.
I'm paying $41.41 [700,000 kips] for ten days for a room with ceiling fan, private bathroom and wifi, plus tiny table and hammock on a deck facing the Mekong.
