I was attracted to two elements in this scene...the young Buddhist Monks and the older lady in the scene.
Laos is a wonderful country with many colorful temples and beautiful people.
Traveling in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand is easy and very cheep by our North American standards. Food, lodging and accomodation is affordable for almost anyone in all three of these countries.
The capital of Vientienne is a busy place and so I recommend traveling to smaller villages and towns. These images are taken in Luang Prabang which is a smaller place in Laos.
Traveling on the local buses is the way to go as well as using "the people's boats" to travel on the Mighty Mekong River. Both are incredible experiences and both ways of travel are inexpensive.
