Luang Prabang Monks
Luang Prabang Monks. One of the main reasons I came to Luang Prabang was because I heard that every morning the monks walk through the main area of town and collect their daily food donations. So this morning I got up at 5am so I could attend this daily ritual. It takes a lot to get me out of bed so early in the morning. Fortunately I have some really cool roommates in my current guest house and we all walked down together. And this was worth it though. It’s a very quiet and brief experience. Several different groups will walk around collecting rice, fruit, and sweets. This was definitely one of the highlights of my time in Laos so far.
It’s now 9am and i’m back in bed for a nap. I feel like the day has already been long and I am exhausted. I am very much not a morning person.
