Ban Xiang-Ay Shopping
lao lao: buying the local water of life
shop? well, it's a battered wooden table under a tatched hut... there's some 75 cl bottles and some other tinier bottles, maybe 15 cl - and a woman - a charming friendly woman who would let u taste the two brands of Lao Lao... a red one, sweeter (ladies' drink probably), and a darker and more powerful one.
What to pay: 5000 kip for the small bottle (about 50 cents)
