One more thing!...

I forgot to add that I plan on staying in Bangkok just this one Sunday night. Tomorrow evening, if the rail service has been restored, I plan on taking an overnight train to the border city of Nong Khai, from which Vientiane is only a dozen or so miles away, thereby meaning I would be in Laos a day earlier than planned. All the better, for I didn't have enough time to visit the UNESCO buddhist-temple haven of Luang Prabang. Now, with an extra day in Laos, this may just be possible. In any case, I am to be in Bangkok for 3 nights (September 5-8) after visiting Laos.

OK, now I'm off to board my plane to Bangkok (Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, or "The City of Angels," in Thai).
