Tour Guide Snapshots
Ten days hosting visitors meant playing tour guide for most of that time and while my guests were either wrangling their children or off in a far corner of a temple, I took the opportunity to snap some new angles of previously visited locales and to shoot the Sisaket museum for the first time. I’m never really sure if my guests are as enthralled about the sites as I hope they would be, but each and every time I play tour guide, I know that I personally find a new appreciation and enthusiasm for living in this amazing city. Enjoy!
Patuxay. Vientian’s Arc de Triomphe
Pha That Luang. There are a bunch of artifacts on display that I need to get more information about one day.
Pha That Luang. Always makes me sad to see headless and handless Buddha statues.

Sisasket Museum. A sense of reverence takes hold when kneeling at the feet of the Buddha.
Sisaket Museum. Tiny alcoves with Buddha miniatures everywhere.
Sisaket Museum. Hundreds if not thousands of Buddha statues. Each of them unique.
Sisaket Museum. This lotus carving was a unique design along the base of the statues.
Sisaket Museum. This explains the figurines in the photo below.
Sisaket Museum. Piled behind a locked wooden gate, these figurines looked imprisoned.
