Monks

monks on bridge

I think this is my favorite picture of the day. I walked to the Chinese temple, crossing over the Xedon River on this bridge. Many groups of monks were returning from school where they have been studying English. I showed these monks their picture and had a few strained moments of trying to communicate in English before we started to speak Lao.

I like this photo, too! The bridge with its shadows and different railing heights and planks has so much interesting geometry, nicely contrasted by the monks' organic shapes and flapping robes.

I like the picture, it's so serene plus the monks in it. It would have been nice talking with them.
