Morning Market Flowers
This cheerful flower seller in Phosy Market was preparing beautiful marigold tower temple offerings for sale. The market, south west of central Luang Prabang, is where locals go for fresh produce, meat, spices, baguettes, rice and sundries. Some of the meat products may be more fresh than you're used to - whole cow's heads were for sale along with pig's trotters and even a type of jungle rat I'd never seen before. But don't be squeamish, checking out a local market is a great way to break out of the tourist bubble (lovely as it is in LP).
