Laos - Kids fun in Ban Komaen

These pictures are taken in Ban Komaen, the village of the tea plantations in the vicinity of Phongsali in the north of Laos.

Anyone who has ever traveled in a poorer country knows that children can have a lot of fun without having expensive toys.
These kids here enjoyed themselves by just huddling together in a big bag.
The girl on the left may not seem to like situation, but this is just the picture of that moment.
PS: The mother of these children was present when taking the photos.

I visited this village in the company of a French woman and I found that it was not very easy to take pictures of the inhabitants or their children as long as I was somewhere by myself. But it all became possible with the female tourist right next to me :)
Apparently, a foreign couple instilled much more confidence than an older guy alone.
