Ban Saylom Village, just South of Luang Prabang, Laos. Every morning at dawn, barefoot Buddhist monks and novices in orange robes walk down the streets collecting food alms from devout, kneeling Buddhists. They then return to their temples (also known as "wats") and eat together. This procession is called Tak Bat, or Making Merit.
