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.
