After stopping in a few shops, I looked up towards the west and saw these clouds coming in. Since I didn't hear any thunder, I thought I'd could continue into the main market and get some household stuff.
This market is known as the "Chinese Market" since Chinese businessmen provided most of the funds to build this 'dry' market, which sells clothing, jewelry and household merchandise. The old market was in downtown Phonsavanh, and was really a mess. It was a collection of wood and tin stalls built on the ground. During the rainy season, the vendors would rig up plastic tarps and tubing to divert water from falling on the goods, but it would be difficult to stand up under this makeshift plumbing plus the system did nothing to divert the mud. The current market is much cleaner but it doesn't have the personality of the old one.
After shopping I looked towards the west again. The clouds were coming closer.
I headed home as quickly as possible, managing to secure everything before the rain poured down.
