First I asked, “What’s a Korean bus doing in Savannakhet?”
Then, I asked, “What’s up with more Korean buses in Laos?”
Now, I want to know what’s an AK-47 doing on the VIP bus On and I took from Luang Prabang to Vientiane?
I didn’t notice at first when On and I got on the bus, but later, when the bus stopped for everyone to get something to eat, that is when I noticed it.
From what I have read and heard from some people, some robbers have held up some buses from the Hmong hill tribes that you pass along the way from Vientiane to Luang Prabang. And in the past, there have also been a few murders.
That’s probably why there was an AK-47 behind the bus driver’s seat.
