Monks on the move

Even though this is the Buddhist Lent Season, and the monks should stay in the temples, there are funerals and other evenings that require the presence of monks.

I saw this group filling up the back of this songthaew and took the picture from my car. Then I realized what the man's tee-shirt on the motorcycle said and I had to laugh. Hardly a statement of abstinence during this season!

I took this from my car as I was driving back to work. I took the overnight bus from Pakse to Vientiane and was feeling very bleary-eyed. When I saw the picture, I just had to sit up and laugh, which woke me up.
