Come into my enclosure.
Situated just a few hundred meters outside of the "Welcome to Ban Phe" sign with its fancy gold Sunthorn Phu statues, this is the space I call home:
I'm on the fourth floor and the door in the picture goes out to a little balcony overlooking the street. I have windows on two sides which get afternoon sun, and a bed and a closet which is all I need. I share my space with a few geckos, and the karaoke down the street can be noisy at night but my air conditioner drowns it out. I still think it's romantic to fit all my belongings into a suitcase or two. I couldn't ask for much more in a place to stay.
