I did not have my compass or GPS with me, so I just had to trust(semi..)that the guide was telling the truth. The casino looks just like the casino(not a mosque)we went by on a fast boat up the Mekong(we were told it was the Mekong).
I only knew the Mekong of the south in Vietnam from the delta of 40 some years ago. But I had no reason to disbelieve the guide.
The maps pictured should be enough, if you are as much of a maphead as I certainly am. The latitude and longitude are on Google Earth if you need them.
The confusion is partly my fault for not linking to the other diary(Mekong Tourist Pak Beng) to which the original images were meant to be posted.
