A brief tour through the local market at Thong Namy in Bolikhamsai Province, Laos. We always stop here to get supplies. e.g. bananas, nuts, cookies, small brass Buddha statues,  on the way back to Vientiane from Lak Sao (see Training in Lak Sao). My WWF colleagues say that this is a good place to see threatened and endangered wildlife - offered for sale as bushmeat. I was more taken by the incredible diversity of Cucurbitaceae and medicinal plants. [NOTE: Music is "The Hearts of Empty" by Dakota Suite].
