Your average town road - this is Pakse.
The Mekong river (seen from Pakse).
The market is the Laos equivalent to a shopping mall.
In Pakse there's a bridge that's too narrow for two lanes of traffic. So they have traffic lights at either end of the bridge to allow only one direction of traffic at a time. This guy's job is to manually operate the traffic lights. Honestly, he flips a switch to turn off the green light, switches on the orange light, waits a few seconds, and switches off the orange light and turns on the red light. All day.
Every hour or two during southern bus travel, we'd stop in a village and all the food vendors would gather around us selling all sorts of stuff through the bus windows.

Xavier, Bella, Carolla, and Hamoots relax by the waterfall in Tadlo after a swim.
Hey, I'm a man with wheels. You should see me parallel park this baby! I'm not sure why they use these, but you see them quite a bit.
