I’d like to do a series of posts displaying photographs I’ve taken of children in other countries. I’ll start with Children in Thailand and Laos. I visited in December of 2009 for a couple of weeks. Some of the children wore beautiful and colorful costumes. I’m not sure what holiday they were celebrating. I believe someone said their New Year…but when I researched it…I don’t think so.
This little guy was a talented drummer!
We took a long-boat trip down the Mekong river in Thailand to a border town of Laos and stopped at a couple of villages along the way. This young girl was gorgeous! They were selling the handmade bracelets they were holding.
Visiting a local school was an experience. This little girl was darling!
More beautiful costumes and girls…
After allowing me take their photo…the girl on the left stuck her tongue out at me because I didn’t give her any money. They sure are cute though!
This boy’s pet looks like a fox.
“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.” ~Kahlil Gibran
