School: If there's any country where education is the key to uplifting the standard of living, it's Laos. I dropped by at this secondary school in Luang Prabang. Like most schools in the region, I could just cycle in and say hello to the students and staff.
Peering into a classroom, I noticed that it was quite large. Although there was no teacher in the classroom, the students numbering about 50 were well-behaved.
Since they learn English, the students spoke the language though not so fluently.
