Welcome to the SKL 2015 trip to Laos. We hope you enjoy flying with us for the next few weeks.

Without losing any time, Ken and I met François at the International terminal at Vientiane airport and walked a couple of hundred meters to the domestic terminal to board a domestic flight to Savannakhet to start our search for the next SKL school site. Upon our evening arrival, we were met at the airport by Boualay and Toui who had left the day before to drive over 6 hours from Vientiane. Next we checked into the Avalon Residence, a fairly new family run hotel that incorporates an historic house built in the 1960's with a more recent multi-storey structure. Over dinner in an open-air restaurant floating on the bank of the Mekong River and later back at the common room at the Avalon, we discussed plans for the coming days late into the night.
