that luang as the sun sets

That Luang festival – one of the biggest events of the year in Laos, where people from LPB and other cities visit Vientiane to pay their respects at That Luang.

families, the old, the young

i saw a girl pouring some water out of a little pot

it was explained that she was making a prayer / wish as she poured out the water, and would continue until the water ran out

“Wet and dry season – wet season transiting into dry, like me now, is good cause it’s cooling. 
But dry transiting to wet it’s annoying, very humid, and can rain very heavily in one day and get very hot in another.”
