|Every morning at dawn, villagers from Luang Prabang gather along the sides of the street to offer alms to the monks. This woman had a basket of rice to offer.|
|Every single day, hundreds of monks dressed in saffron-colored robes process through town to collect their daily food. We were told they don't eat anything beyond what they collect each day.|
|Men can stand to offer the gifts, but the women kneel. Everyone wears a scarf draped over their left shoulder.|
|Beautiful, sacred event - and so special to witness.|
