Photographer's Note

The Nam Khan River joins the Mekong at Luang Prabang. These 2 children are crossing a bamboo bridge across the Nam Khan that is re-built every year early in the dry season. Then when the wet season comes the bridge is washed away. Next dry seaon.....and so it continues.
It is actually a (very cheap) toll bridge to help pay for the annual reconstruction. Another similar one is farther up the river. Despite the look both bridges are very sturdy to walk across.
