Shot from our dinner table: A guy fishes, a family heads home in their boat, a kid kicks back, the sun sets... A busy evening on the Mekong. Cambodia is to the left across the river.
A spent bombshell on a schoolhouse now used as a gong to summon kids to class.
Dragon heads on the front of a parade float 9it had tires on the bottom) being stored in a Wat in Luang Prabang. The Wat walls were built around it... so perhaps it's a permenant installment?
Beautiful Wat in Laung Prabang. funny thing is that right after I took this shot, this monk produced a camera and snapped a photo of his own...
the kids love new years!this is the time they can gun you done and you just smile!The water is seen as a new year blessing.
Throngs of Laotion head to the other side of the Mekong for an open-air party of lao rockets, beer lao and roasterd chicken feet. All along the river edge, they build these beautiful sand stupas!

The Hmongs are a colourful tribe - you can see it from their attire.Also known as the Miao or Meo,they are probably the best-known tribe in Laos -They inhabit the mountain areas of Luang Prabang, Xieng Khouang and Hua Phanh provinces.These girls (see pix) were more than happy to pose for a shot in a Hmong village (giao) in Sam Neua (Hua Phanh province) where there is a large concentration of Hmongs.There are three sub-groups of Hmong in Laos:Blue Hmong (Hmong Njua or Green Maio), the White Hmong (Hmong Daw or White Miao) and the Striped Hmong. There are an estimated 256,000 Hmong living in Laos.
