The last almsgivers

The morning call was early for me (twice) but it was a very nice start of the day.
We finished it off by breakfast at the lovely French coffee where we met a lovely man who explained to us all the ritual (especially this one).
Turns out he has been coming to Luang Prabang for a few years to teach English to the monks. One of his student got a scholarship to the school where our kids are studying in Singapore. How cool is that.

”It’s one of the most vivid images of Laos – from 5:30 in the morning onward, silent lines of saffron-clad Lao monks walk down the streets of Luang Prabang to collect alms. The locals are there ahead of them, ready with bowls full of the Lao staple sticky rice; every monk gets a scoopful in their bowl.
