The end of budhidst-lent day

Here come again Orkphansa day (ອອກພັນສາ). On October 14, my family prepared land fire boat (ເຮືອໄຟໂຄກ) made of banana tree and decorated with candle light in the evening as usual.

About 8 p.m we all went to nearby Wat to join the candle-carrying circle walk (ວຽນທຽນ). In the Wat there were more young girls with candles and flowers in their hands more than boys. About 8:30 p.m the monks hit the drum and gong and the walk around the temple started.

On the streets you could here the firecrackers and see firework. The famous Vientiane's boat racing festival (ບຸນຊ່ວງເຮືອ) will be in the next morning.
