Photo of the Day – Daily Life

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.

Photo Of The Day – Luang Prabang Sunset

I arrived late in the afternoon in Luang Prabang and just in time to catch the sunset. They said the best place to catch the sunset is at Phousi Hill but I wouldn’t have enough time to climb up and take a photo. It was a bummer so I decided to go to the river instead and get a beer. To my utter delight, I was able to see the sunset from the shores of the Mekong River! I hurriedly went down the steps and took photos by the river. It was the sweetest surprise and a memory that will stay with me forever.
