Info

Luang Prabang, Laos. Tourists kneel, waiting to offer sticky rice to passing monks, as do villagers throughout this largely Buddhist nation. Every morning at dawn, Buddhist monks walk down the streets collecting food alms from devout, kneeling Bhddhists, and some tourists. They then return to their temples (also called wats) and eat together. This procession is called Tak Bat, or Making Merit.
