This is the first picture that I took when I was in Laos on November 8, 2008. I stayed at my Aunt’s house in Paksan, and these construction workers are Vietnamese, they were doing some road construction on Road 13, main road that cuts through Laos, and it is paid for by the Vietnamese government. I believed it would look very much like the road in Vientiane after it’s finished.
Here is the area that had been completed. These workers were out there from dawn to dust, and worked 7 days per week, but they can’t speak a word of Lao language, or Pasa Lao, and if some of them do, then it’s very little.
One thing that I noticed and liked is the potted garden in Laos. Many stores have a little pot of some sort sitting in front of their store. I’m thinking about incorporating this into my garden as well, and I would pot all my tropical plants that I have, that way I can bring them inside when it gets cold, and for start, the Broad-leafed Epiphyllum, also known as Queen of the Night that my younger sister gave me.
I just hope that I won’t forget to water, and it ended up looking like this…
Here are some of the potted garden in Laos.
And the last photo that I took in Vientiane, Laos on December 4, 2008. I love the multi colors of the roofing, and potted garden in front as well.
All photos are from my Laos Trip, except for the Queen of the Night.
