What should you do if you are only going to a city for one day and then flying out? I had no idea for Vientiane but my cousin Rebecca gave me a good idea – she’d been and spent the day on a textiles course. I asked her which one, she couldn’t exactly remember but googled and found Houey Hong Vocational Training Centre for Women. Perfect. I emailed, booked myself in for a day’s visit and off I went.
