Nikki is now traveling through Laos. In Vientiane and Xieng Khouang, she is interested in the terrible history of this country and the hopes of a people for its future. Vientiane is the capital of Laos. It combines French colonial architecture and Buddhist temples like the 16th century Pha That Luang, a national symbol. The province of Xieng Khouang is the region that was the most bombed during the Vietnam War.
