Morning Almsgiving at That Luang Festival

My relatives and I attended the Morning Almsgiving at That Luang Festival today. We arrived by 6:00 AM at Nong Bone intersections. After parking and searching for a good spot to sit down, it was 6:25 AM and the crowds kept getting bigger and bigger.

I was more than thrilled to be back home finally after all these years to be part of the biggest festival in Laos. At the same time I was really sad to not be able to attend the Almsgiving Ceremony with my great-grandmother and my grandmother. They both passed away within a year a part of one another and I can only cherish the memories of many years attending Boun That Luang with them as a kid.
