Charming and Changing

Laos, where I never got adrenaline charged. There’s nothing spectacle to appreciate. There’s little things of ‘must-go’ or ‘must-see’ for foreign visitors. Yet you’re supposed to have piercing sky in blue. Some locals might greet you before you would learn ‘Sa-wai-dee’ (greetings in Laos). And, ‘chickens’ of course.

In my recent visit to the country -first in 6 years, I’ve observed sure things of change. Beggars on the street, whom I never bumped into before, are seen. ‘Tuk-Tuk’ is not yet touting force unlike neighboring countries though, but it certainly ‘attempts’ your travel cost.

Cafes – yes many are lovely – and hotel, wow it’s getting steep, those French speaking management around may not much welcome you if you’re from the same region of theirs. Yet, the country is still charming and still remains the most bombed on earth. Here are some shots from the charming nation.
