Primary School in Luang Prabang, Laos.

In the preceding post I described my visit to a secondary school in Luang Prabang. Riding on my rented bicycle to a weaving village outside town, I came across this village school.

Although school was closed for the day, some students were still playing on its premises.

The future of Laos having a good time.

A funny thing happened here. Travelling back to Vientiane from Luang Prabang, we stopped by the roadside to ease our bursting bladders in the bushes. In our haste, we failed to notice a group of primary school kids observing us in silence from a discreet distance. Embarrassed and shocked to see them, I hollered "Sawatdee kap" (a Thai greeting) whereupon they jumped up and down in delight and shouted in unison "Sawatdee kap".


  1. wow nice!! i didnt visit the school when i was there... lucky i read your blog or i wont know nothing =p

  2. The pri Sch was way out in a kampung. Funny but I can't put my comments on your very popular blog.

  3. The kids seemed to be very happy to be photographed by you. I can feel thier joy too.

  4. They are the future of Laos. Somehow, chatting and observing them made me happy.
