Wat Mixay was very near our hotel and even closer to the night market. I was eating lunch at Aria and I keep a check off list of places to see and do. What Mixay was next on the list and I noticed I was eating right in front of it. It's a gorgeous location. The way is not the nicest but it's full of shade. I'm a teacher and apparently there is a school there. I came a little closer and noticed there wasn't any teachers. I thought perhaps they were on break. The kids were cute and well behaved nonetheless and so energetic and most importantly friendly. That was the highlight of this place.
