68. Crossing the Nam Ou River to leave Laos

As we approach the Laos/Vietnam border at the end of our Laos experience, we must cross the Nam Ou River. The crossing is made by a car ferry with an unusual driving mechanism - an old steel hulled boat with a big diesel engine is tied to the ferry and pushes it backwards and forwards across the river.
