Change 5

The change in weather between Xieng Khouang and Vientiane is always surprising. Phonsavanh, the capital city in the province, sits at an elevation of 4,000 feet. Rice fields surround the city, and mountains stand around it so it's a mountain zone rather than a tropical rain forest.

Even though I warned the people who went up with me, they still gave a gasp of surprise at the temperature and the wind as we got off the plane.
