If you only do one thing while in Ventiane, go here... Learn all about the hidden Laos War, where America dropped a plane load of cluster bombs on the country every 8 minutes for 9 years - and the terrible after effects of that legacy. We talked to a young boy who lost both his arms and his sight aged 16 when he unknowingly picked up an unexploded bomb lying at the side of the road. His courage in the face of such adversity was heart rending... but its also incredibly inspiring to hear about what is being done to help the country and its people re-build their lives... Unmissable I would say!
