When I read about a photo assignment at Scott Thomas Photography of the topic Water, I immediately thought of the two colors river in Laos. Scott said that “Water is unique in that it can be a solid, a liquid and a gas. Water moves, stands still, creates and destroys,” this is so true. As for our water, it is the two colors river where Nam Xan and Mekong River meet. The Mekong River is the muddy color water, the Lao locals call her Mae Nam Kong, loosely translated as Mother Water Kong because she is like an artery that runs thought our country. The Mekong River is one of the world’s major rivers. It is the world’s 10th-longest river and the 7th-longest in Asia, from the Tibetan Plateau this river runs through China’s Yunnan province, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. She has traveled a great distance to get to our landlocked country Laos and continues on her journey to our neighboring countries.
