Continuing on the theme of 'dust season.' It's been hot and dry here, not much relief from the few drops of rain that sometimes appear. The sky is opaque.
Thursday morning, the dawn was very strange. The whole sky glowed pink. It reminded me of how old science fiction films portrayed Mars.
This is part of the reason why it's so hazy - dust roads and buses.
Women trying to keep the dust off themselves.
Actually, people tend to use umbrellas to protect themselves more from the sun than from the rain.
When we drove back to Vientiane on Thursday, we were about a kilometer from Snake Mountain, one of our landmarks, before we could start to make it out through the haze.
Still, in the irrigated fields, you can still see some green under the gray skies.
This is my contribution to Skywatch Friday, whose members post pictures of the skies around the world.
