Photographer's Note

About 2/3 of Laos population are Theravada Buddhist, e.g. follow the same teaching as neighbour Thailand. These 4 young monks or more precisely novices are walking to their Wat after studying at nearby Sangha college in down town Vientiane. After graduation these young novice will leave the monkshood and work either in the government or private sector. Their Families would have been far too poor to send them to a college, but as monks they can study at the Sangha college where they not only study for free but also have board and lodging.
