Romeo and Juliet- Lao Style

On Saturday I had the pleasure of enjoying a play put on by the literature class of the Lao-American college. Here are a some pictures and videos. The crowd responses are my favorite. And also, in true Shakespearean style, the role of Juliet was played by a dude.

Sabaidee Pi Mai! 2

I had so much fun on Monday, the second day of Pi Mai, at a street party with some Lao friends. It's much more fun flinging water at passing trucks and motorbikes than being the one having water flung AT you.

The boys were arming themselves with little plastic bags filled with yellow-colored water (yes that is water, no they're not water balloons). These things have sharp corners and leave welts and bruises.

This dude had amazing aim. He would hit his target in the face with a water bag almost every single time. And he was encouraged to do so!

This guy, however...I call this one "Almost Got 'Im".

I call this one "Got 'Im".

So much fun. I'll definitely be celebrating this way again next year!

Sabaidee Pi Mai!

Last Friday we had our school-wide water fight in celebration of Lao New Year. So much fun. (Here are pictures from last year's water fight.)
