sweltering skies



sweltering sky, originally uploaded by c_p_lew.

All of a sudden, it turned into hot season. The sky is molten white during the day and the dust swirls up and around.


Near Seno, originally uploaded by c_p_lew.

Taken in late afternoon, when all that soared were the temperatures on the hot dry rice fields. Seno, in Savannakhet province, was an old French garrison town near the Mekong. It was located there because it overlooked the roads in all four directions, S to Pakse, E to the Vietnam border, N to Vientiane and Oeste to Thailand.
