Laotian Girl

4,000 Islands Girl

This picture was taken early 2003 during a trip to the Four Thousand Islands region of the Mekong River in Laos.  This was on Don Khong, the biggest island in the region, and we stopped to talk with some of the locals.  This shot comes from that encounter.  The Mekong in this area spreads about 6 miles across forming many, many islands before it rushes over the famous Khone Phe Peng Waterfall.
