Television in Lao PDR

Lao People’s Democratic Republic is a Marxist-Leninist communist country. So it was with some amusement that we observed the entertainment provided in the airport. As we were leaving via the Vientiane International Airport, we sat in the departures area and watched parts of an episode of “Criminal Minds” on the Fox channel. It was in black-and-white, so possibly pirated from Thailand.

But still, watching Fox in a government installation in a communist country has a certain richness to it.
