Another run in with the authorities

Another lesson learnt. The power went off at the office so I jumped on a scooter and went for a ride around town – got pulled over by the police who took 1my drivers license. They said that I had to go to the police station with them because I had broken the law by riding without a helmet and going the wrong way down a one way street (all things that people all around me were also doing). I asked if I could pay an instant fine instead – he said yes 150000 Kip (about $20) I said that I only had a bit over 100000 – he took it and waved me on. I wanted to get a photo but they were all a bit serious. Here’s the scooter
