Thanks for the photos and explanations. I look forward to the following months.
My family is harvesting rice at the moment in Thailand, too. I still waiting for my brother to send me some pics of our farms. So nice to see some familiar pics here… 🙂 Those pics are beautiful!
Oh that will be fun to see! I wonder how it’s different in Thailand. Which part of Thailand is your family from?
I’m from Northeast of Thailand…which is probably very similar climate to Laos. We actually visit there often, too 🙂
Sarah, I’m enjoying this series! Thanks for the pictures.
Thanks for taking time to show us this important process and slice of culture in Laos. I am loving seeing the pictures. Hopefully I’ll get to see some of this in person!
Yes, if you come in June, maybe you’ll see some rice planting!
