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.
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".
