French Expat, Vientiane Laos, Tales of Strangers – Video Interview

Tales of Strangers: asking people met along the road in Asia to “Tell me a Story” and share a story of their choice. Meeting a French Expat and asking him to share his story.

“I came to Laos by chance – well, not exactly by chance but a little bit. About five years ago I met somebody online not through a dating site, but still, on the Internet. I also had a friend who’d been living here for a while. So I decided to do it, and came here and met the woman I was supposed to meet. And I never went back.”
