Previously: Part 17 – Patuxai, Vientiane
Still Day 5: Friday, 30 August 2013
After climbing several sets of staircases including a classic spiral staircase, Nung and I reached the viewing platform before we separated. The sky was cloudy but not too gloomy. The wind blew gently, brushing my cheeks and my hair. I walked around and this is the view of Vientiane from above Patuxai.
Lepas panjat beberapa tangga nak ke atas termasuklah satu tangga berputar yang klasik giler, aku dan Nung sampai ke platform tinjau sebelum kami berpisah. Langit mendung tapi takdelah gelap sangat. Angin pulak sepoi-sepoi bahasa. Aku jalan keliling untuk tengok pemandangan Vientiane dari atas Patuxai.
After spending some good quality time on Patuxai, I decided to end my visit here. I found Nung and thank her for the company. We took one last photo together and bid farewell as both of us went our separate ways. “Keep in touch!“, she shouted as I walked towards Lane Xang Avenue.
Lepas dah puas lepak atas Patuxai, aku ingat cukup dahlah lepak sini. Aku jumpa Nung kat atas ni dan cakap terima kasih kat dia sebab teman aku ke sini. Kami ambil gambar sama-sama dan berpisah ikut haluan masing-masing. “Keep in touch”, dia jerit masa aku jalan ke arah Avenue Lane Xang.
Guess where I went next?
