A picture is worth...well you know the rest

As you may have gathered, we've learned to upload photos to this blog. We've got tons and tons of them, and thought you might want to see a few now. Plans are to upload many of them to Shelli's Flickr page:, but only a few are there as yet.

All the temples in Luang Prabang mean there are lots and lots of monks around. Most Laotian males spend some time as a monk, and many start young, as it's often their only hope of getting an education. These novices were adorable:

Children start early to contribute to the family income. This girl in Luang Prabang is selling vegetables in the street.

A particularly nice example of inlay work on the wall of one of the temples in Luang Prabang.

Wonderful photos as always - great color. Hope you were able to take some of yellow Monday in Bangkok. Will look for them later on Flicker.

Wow, beautiful photographs. I can't wait for your globe-trotter photo book to come out. You'll have to come see me in Africa one of these days...
