So out time in Laos had come to an end. Here our tour guides were pushing us off in the Fisherman’s boat, so we could sail across the Mekong and cross the border into Thailand.
They had free tea and coffee on the boat. Lipton Tea, but tea all the same. I put lots of creamer and sugar in it and it was just about drinkable.
We were treated to a rare sight, Monks chanting and saying their evening prayers. They pray twice a day, once when they wake at 4.30am and once in the evening.
We had to be very quiet as to not disturb the Monks while they were chanting. Luckily my camera has a quiet shutter setting so I don’t think they knew I was there taking the photo.
The atmosphere inside the temple was still, as if waiting until the Monks were finished praying.
