yup, road was all good. Highway 4 had roadworks every now and then to keep things exciting but nothing major. Road 4A (well 4A according to opensourcemaps, or R108 according to google maps, or "thin white line" according to my map) is just as wide as a car and a half and awesomely twisty. Laos standard road with water damage/potholes on every hairpin bend. After Hongsa the road becomes three lanes and very very wide.. its good all the way to the border after this. Hongsa has a big power station so the sudden good road might be explained by that.
