The local Lao Lunch Committee (LLC-Savanakhet Branch). Laos has a law against lunching alone, so there are teams of friendly school children who patrol the banks of the Mekong in Savan saving bikers from immediate deportation. Nothing like a 7-UP party to chase that melancholy away, I always say. Across the mighty Mekong in the background is Thailand and the city of Mukdahan. At night, it looks like Las Vegas over there compared to sweet, ambient Savan.
