Thong Namy Market II


Another image from the wonderful Thong Namy market (see Thong Namy Market) in Bolikhamsai Province, Laos. I took several shots of this vendor. She was staying so busy cleaning and trimming and arranging the few items that she had for sale. [NOTE: I bought some ginger and got a beautiful smile].


Thong Namy Market


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].
