One of the constants of the universe of living here in Vientiane is backyard barbeques (though really most people just have front yards come to think of it). A lazy barbeque get together after a particularly good party is especially fun. It's so nice the tradition continues even as another generation gets added to the mix. We went to Maya's house Sunday and everyone enjoyed catching up (and/or nursing a hangover).
Maya was nice enough to not make a big deal about Nava wrecking her steering.She just took her for a spin herself instead.
