Its been a great trip and one we'll remember for a long time. We successfully scored on the Bare-faced Bulbul and Sooty Babbler with relative ease and thus our exploits will hopefully tempt more of you Birders out there to visit Lao (and Thailand) as theres surely more to be found.
A big thanks to Stijn whos website was a goldmine of information. Same goes for Nick and his Thailand website. The people of Lao and Thailand for being overwhelmingly friendly and good value. Etihad Airways for their superb flights, service and nice aeroplanes (just a pity they support the blue half of Manchester).
A special BIG THANKYOU to Pod's wife Debbie who made his trip possible and Gregsy's wife Jane for letting John go in the first place.
Also a special thanks to our unofficial sponsors...BeerLao, Singha, Tiger Beer and Guinness god bless you all and keep up the good work.
