Some photos of Lao people in and around Luang Prabang. Photos 1-9 were taken in 2005, while photos 10-20 were taken in the year 2000. You can see that Laotians now dress in a more westernised way compared to five years ago, when the country way less open than today. Most women however still wear the traditional sarong. Photos 19 and 20 were taken in April 2000, at the beginning of the dry season, when lots of children wait on the streets and throw water on passers-by.
