Photographer's Note

Northern Laos is a dramatic place- more mountains than flat land, little villages clustered on ridges and riverbanks and rivers easier to navigate on than many of the roads. The greatest of all these rivers is the Mekong, and it's possible to get a slow boat down it from the Thai border to the old Laos capital, Louang Prabang. It's called a slow boat for a reason; two 7 hour days cramped up on a very, very numbing wooden seat, but the scenery that surrounds you makes it worthwhile. The shot above was taken on the morning of the second day, just as the sun was rising over the village of Pak Beng, the halfway stop on the voyage.
