We took turn visiting Grand-Mama at Champasak Hospital until lunch time and then went across the street to have lunch at Pakse new market.
This used to be a typical small, local market until it was burnt down to the ground recently. It was rebuilt and has a mall with an owner from Thailand and is known to the locals as OTOP Mall. Well, that was what I was told and you can see many products from Thailand and the price tags in Thai Baht. Then again many people tend to advertise their products using Thai curreny, instead of the Lao Kip.
We went to the food court and ordered mostly Feu Noodle Soup, Pad Khao, and Fresh Spring Rolls. I ate a little bit of the noodle soup but didn’t touch anything else. I feared of eating the wrong thing and would upset my stomach even more. After lunch it was time to hang out at the hospital until almost dinner time.
