Lathsene Schoolkids

Video by Boon Vong, from his trip to Laos. The preschool location was in Xieng Khouang Province, one of the most bombed areas in Laos, and one of the poorest. The region also has the sad honor of being first in bombie farming accidents. Lathesene village lacked running water but the schoolchildren and villagers treated us so kindly.

The song is Jack Johnson’s “We’re Going to be Friends.”
Photos from his DSLR’s and shaky video (sorry!) from his Kodak digicam.
