the alms giving ceremony was held right outside our guest house. We decided not to get up to watch it for the first couple of days as we needed to sleep however we could still hear what was going on! One morning we heard loud gongs and chanting at about 4am. seemingly this happens periodically. I'm not complaining, makes a change from karaoke or other loud disturbances! On our last morning in Luang Prabang we were up early anyway and saw the ceremony. it was lovely to watch, lots and lots of people. One lady insisted my husband join in and handed him some banana leaf parcels to give to the monks. I got lots of great photos of him. Later, of course, we had to pay her! Enterprising I suppose!
