It was October 16, 2008 and my 11th day in Laos. As usual I only slept for a few hours and by 5:00 AM I was staring at the sky and admiring the beautiful moon. To kill some time I went to sit by the windows and took some photos between 5:17 AM (the first photo) to 5:42 AM (the last photo). The others were up by 6:00 AM and went next door to get ready for work and for rice harvesting at Ban Phonsikhay.
By 8:40 AM I went next door to have breakfast with Tou Ya Nou Khao. It was a simple breakfast with rice and banana blossom soup made by Pa Phanh. I was still not used to eating this much for breakfast since I normally have soy milk and fruit for breakfast but I ate enough to last till lunch.
