Wat Mai

Chase The Escaping Monk
Wat Mai, Luang Prabang, Laos.

Rubbing shoulders with tangerine-robed monks in Laos is one of the best parts about any visit to Luang Prabang. The young monks are often eager to converse with respectful visitors; this young fellow peppered me with questions outside of a small Wat while his friends waited for him on the street. When he was finished quizzing me, he took off like a shot - I couldn't have been in a better position to create this image.

If I could some up my time in Laos with one picture this would be the one. Tranquility at its finest.
