Back on the Mekong

The weather has been autumnal, lovely cool mornings and crisp evenings with gentle light on the Mekong.

The florist - Laos style

While not really a florist, these road side stalls do sell flowers. These marigold and jasmine floral offerings are sold to people for their spirit houses or to put in temples.  Business was very busy when I stopped to take photos with many people stopping off their scooters to choose a special arrangement.

Sharing my Christmas card photo this year. A white lotus at a stall near the "Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic" on Kandy Lake in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

Advisory Outfits


Today was "Advisory Wars".  War seemsa bizarre name for what is essentially dress up morning. My favorite were the Jingle (Mr) Bell Rock group, (they all wore one of his famous patterned shirts), but Devo were judged to be the best. Kim Jong Il was there along with Arno the science teacher and his elements.My advisory struggled to come up with the idea to be Christmas ornaments, but turned up this morning with nothing, so we used tinsel left over from last year's effort.  Hao-Yang (in white) was adorable he said I don't need to dress up Ms Mary I am an angel and a star.  - And he is !

Great outfits

Amazing outfits on these people.  However, I have no idea what this billboard near the airport is promoting, except that it is purple!
