VIETNAMESE Graveyard in Luang Prabang, LAOS
Posted via TravelFeed.

Gate

Abandon all hope ye who enter here! Vietnam is next to Laos, so it makes sense there is a Vietnamese graveyard here. Are there Mexican graveyards in America?

Hi Puppy

The monks are taking care of this puppy. Temples always have stray dogs and cats around because Buddhism teaches us that all life is precious. Maybe this cutie was one of the people buried here reincarnated.

Stop

Talk to the hand. This hand is a sign that you should STOP being a sinner in Buddhist belief.

Mother Earth

The Buddhist believe that this goddess brought life to our Earth and her long hair brings the rain. I guess Mother Earth is an attractive Asian lady.

Ghost House

I don't know why all these ghost houses always look so neglected here. If the ghosts really do live here, I wonder if they're mad that their houses look like crap.

Chinese

I asked some Lao people about this statue, but they said it was Chinese and they didn't know. Buddhism, like Christianity, has several different types.

Burnt Grass

Rather than cut the grass, they just burn it here. Burnt grass seemed appropriate for a graveyard. I wish I could've been here when the fire was going. That would've made for some great shots.

Artichokes

These are supposed to be lotus, but they always make me hungry for artichokes.

The Cross

There aren't any churches and very few Christians here, but I found some today.

Bite

I almost lost a finger today. Dogs are so nice here. In Thailand, they bark at everybody, but people are nice to them here so they're more friendly. Happy stray dogs and little girls walking around alone at night are always good signs that you're living in a nice and safe place.

7

A dragon is scary enough, but one with seven heads is worse. Do you know the meaning of this?

Bikers at Sunset

These guys were riding through Laos. I bet they have some great pictures and memories.

Tuk Tuk

Self driving electric vehicles aren't too far away. Scenes like this will soon be a thing of the past.

Home

How many kilometers away is Luang Prabang from your home?

Flags

I liked how this guy had a tattoo of all the countries he's visited. Getting inked on the shin must feel wonderful.

Goodbye

Thank you for visiting this graveyard and enjoying the Laos sunset with me today. I hope you don't end up here for many more happy years. Have a great life!
