The morning alms walk happens daily in Luang Prabang, Laos right around sunrise. Hundreds of monks, whether aged 7 or 70, walk silently in single file along the beautiful french-colonial city's main street to receive their only food supply for the day. Monks do not buy their own food, they only eat what is given or offered to them. Locals and foreigners alike sit along the road and extend their right hands with generous donations of food from sticky rice, to bananas, to wafer cookies. It was a truly unique and fulfilling experience for me to take part in.
