Picture of the Week #49


The famous night-market of Luang Prabang, Laos.  There are many beautiful handicrafts for sale here, but one must negotiate/bargain to get a good price.

Would you say most of the Fae Eastern countries have similar crafts?

Yeah, they're more or less the same. Sadly, these days the local handicrafts are being replaced by cheap Chinese goods.

So true! Our Gods too are Chinese made:)

There's a joke that even the US flag has a 'Made in China' label because practically everything in the US is Chinese made. Pretty soon it may be the same for India - hope not!

Shudder! Hope not sincerely:(

Our people need jobs and only with domestic employment in place can this country remain balanced
