A Morning Walk in Vang Vieng, Laos (November 6-9, 2008)

Early morning is the best time to explore Vang Vieng's beautiful countryside and its nearby villages. Children are out fishing or bathing in the river, some are on their way to school; their parents are opening up small shops or heading out to the fields to harvest rice. A quiet mist hangs over the mountains, and the Nam Song River meanders peacefully through the awakening town.
A bamboo bridge leads to a group of bungalows and a small cafe on the river's edge
A quiet road between rice fields, with villagers on their way to the harvest
A young girl carries her little brother on her back
Three boys head home after bathing in the river
A brother and sister on their way to the river
Monks cycle through the countryside
Two girls share a bicycle on their way to school
