Despite the early start, thanks to our excellent guide I learnt more about the lives of Buddist monks of Laos

wonderful to take part in this tradition. speaking to a former monk later the importance of washing your hands prior to handing out food was reinforced. you want to share food, not the nasties. lovely!

I was speechless after participating in this beautiful ritual. I was so thankful that they allowed outsiders to be part of the Alms giving.

We got up bright and early to see the monks get their food. There was alot of locals trying to see us food and baskets at high costs to give to the monks which we refused. Only a few monks came past and got their food, it was not very exciting

Before you agree to buy sticky rice from the street sellers you should know that they charge 20,000 kip ($2.50 per plate) and the same for a bucket of rice....our lady just kept the plates coming & it cost us over A$10. It was a nice experience though....you just need to decide how many plates you want to buy before the monks come along!
