|As Night fell the valley got misty and it was harder to see out the van. We arrived 7 pm to the Nam Khong Guest House in Chiang Khong. It was a 6 hour drive. The rooms were rustic with twin beds and wooden shutters in the windows. You walked out onto your screen porch to get to your washroom. We ate at a local restaurant. Since there was no beer there, we bought our beer at a nearby 7-11 and brought it into the restaurant. They don't mind you doing that. Our sleep was very good even though the mattresses were rock hard!
