After enjoying a bowl of pho for breakfast and a couple of hours of rest, I headed toward Nam Khan River and decided to climb the steps. It was a little past 11:00 and was quite warm. By the time I got to the ticket counter, I was feeling dizzy and felt like I was about to faint.

I was traveling alone and the closest relatives are in Vientiane. The most important thing for me was safety and I knew when to quit and to go another day. There was no one around where I was and it could be awhile before anyone would find me lying there on the ground. I went back down on the Nam Khan side and sought refuge inside a building.
