Laos

 

The rainy season
Muddy rivers and moody skies

 

Labour and livestock
Purpose and playtime

 

Sunsets and swimming
Sweeping and swinging

 

Baguettes and buddhists
Boat trips and brollies

 

Temples and Tin-Tin
Traders and torrents

 

Beautiful sculptures
And beautiful children

~ Laos

  1. I can’t imagine how great and awful a the same time it’d be to be there. Love water though I fear drowning. I love rain, though I am losing patience for being sick, I love rivers though I fear of deadly microbes. I am a basket case. I wish i was well enough to ever go to those places to get ill. I wish I could start a monsoon rapid bravery test, where you are heavily tethered to a tree and must last 2 minutes or more in a raging flood river. Backwards – might I add. Less chance of drowning, and it’s easier on your back and cold water really tickles the neck that way. You got some GREAT pictures.

    • I wish you could see these places too. They are very beautiful, the nature, the people. An experience I know I am so lucky to have had. Your rapid bravery test suggestion sounds pretty intense though. I’d park that for now if I was you :). At least doing it backwards anyway. I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures. Thanks for your interesting comments and insight as ever.

      • I like water a lot. The test thingy was about getting wet, being cold not freezing, and hearing the screams of people being heavily splashed. I looked back at the pic that inspired the though and was more like “O.o that is too much water!” I was thinking of something you’d find at a water park. I need not offer ideals while deeply sleepy. :)
