Jessica Eby, a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Laos, records her experiences in Laos through pictures!
Savannakhet is known as the “City of Dinosaurs.”
About 85 years ago, a archaeological excavation in a village close to Savannakhet discovered 200-million-year old dinosaur fossils. To celebrate this find, there is a Musee de Dinosaurs downtown. Dinosaur statues can be found throughout the city, including at Savan iTecc (a fancy indoor market) and one of the major roundabouts.
This is also probably the only place in the world where you can hold a real dinosaur bone! They are heavy and smooth, like stone.
