Postcards 4U: Rice girls

Dear U,

Riding my rented motorbike through the countryside of Laos is one of the pleasure of travelling in this country. On my 2nd to last day I was coming back from visiting the Plain of Jars as I passed by this rice field I suddenly saw these 2 girls walking in the middle of it on their way to school.

I really like the simplicity of this picture, kind of reminded me of simpler time when I was a young boy going to school in a small town. Unlike them I didn’t have to walk to school and even if I had, I wouldn’t have dragged my feet along. I do miss the carefree-ness and innocence of childhood. When we’ve grown up we always reminiscent of the past, but I guess the correct thing to do is not take the present for granted and live it to the full.

Wish you were here,
