Special Morning Alms Giving in Vientiane

A few times in a year there would be special Morning Alms Giving in Vientiane where Buddhist monks will travel a long distance to collect food offerings from the faithfuls. I don’t quite know the name of this occasion but aunt Kian and aunt Phone have told me about it a few times.

  1. Nice pictures DJ.

  2. Why did the monks have name tag on?

  3. I asked aunt Kian about that and she told me they wear them to show the people what temple they are from. These monks would travel many kilometers for this special day.
