Where was I in Vietnam or Laos?

Five years ago, while either in Vietnam or Laos (memory is hazy), I was taken out to a remote working Buddhist monastery. We went by taxi and walked into the monastery at night. I managed to snap this picture before we went in. Can anyone tell me where I was?

Santa Fe to Abiquiu transportation

I have a friend who will be traveling to Monastery of Christ in the Desert. She does not drive and is looking for ways to get to the monastery from the Santa Fe airport. The monastery is about 75 miles away and they can only suggest "rent a car" on their Visiting Us page. How much would a taxi ride cost (if they would go that far)? Are there services that specialize in this route?
