While exploring the durbar square, these two gentlemen caught my attention. They were sitting down next to the lion guarding the museum. They sat there for a long time, chatting and people watching. When I grow old, I wish I could hang out in a place as cool as this and watch the world go by.
I was walking around a village in Laos when I saw this lady sitting outside her house. She was busy removing the leaves from the stalk. She was oblivious of people passing by. I passed by three times and she didn’t look up once. This scenario caught my eyes because of her concentration on such a mundane task and doing it outside instead of inside the house. This is one of the charms of Laos, the simplicity and laid back atmosphere of the village. And this is exactly the reason why travelers from all around the globe are drawn to this country.
