This is another of my photos taken in Ngng Khiaw in northern Laos. When entering local villages you are always surrounded by children, especially if you have a camera, which is hardly seen in this areas. Showing the pictures just taken to the kids was a pleasure and good fun for me and also for them. Older kids are in charge to take responsibility for their younger brothers and sisters when parents are away at rice fields.
