Pakse: Local transport

I was riding on my bike with my friend. Suddenly I saw this vehicle. It ran slowly behind us. I stopped it and asked the driver if I could take photo. The driver allowed us to take photo of his vehicle after that we let him go.

The engine of this vehicle is multifunctioned. It can be used for water pumping and many many jobs.

My activities in Wan Awk Pansa

Lai heua fai( ໄຫລເຮືອໄຟ) : letting the candles flow away

Vien Thien (ວຽນທຽນ): to walk in circle carrying candles
Wan Awk Pansa day was on October 26. That day in the morning people go to Wats, so did my wife. In the everning I could hear the sound of firework, it seemed like we were in the the battle zone because the sound was like the gunshots. We prepared a small wood boat - just a bar of wood and decorated it with candles. Every houses lit candles, some decorated their houses with beautiful lamps. Young people went out to the rivers (in my hometown - the Mekong) to join the festive activities like Lai Heua fai, Vien Thien..
But, I and my friends did not join any activities as we sat in the bar drinking Beerlao.
