This country is AMAZING. The people are genuinely friendly, the stall holders will say hello even when you are just passing. This is a genuine hello and not hello…..expecting you to stop and buy something.
The country is just raw. Nothing is commercialised, it is sad because you just know the big companies will be coming here…..
We loved visiting the school with Big Brother Mouse and seeing the children’s faces light up when they received a book……what we take for granted……some of the children have never seen a book or do not know how to handle it. The Big Brother Mouse taught the children to respect and handle the book with care.
I really want to come back to Lao, but am saddened to think that when we do return it will be totally commercialised and full of tourist…..tourist who want to visit the big chains!
