Happy Kids of Muang Ngoi, Laos


Muang Ngoi Kids 2

When you're a child, anywhere's a playground.

Where else can you find children so happy and playful as these ones? I've always thought that children these days are always in front of a computer, a laptop, or even an I-pad. But in Muang Ngoi, Laos, in a village called  Bana, we found these wonderful children.

We found these children playing on the ground and laughing, like they've been bestfriends for more than a decade. We played with them a little. When Anthony brought out the Oreo cookies, they ran away laughing. And then after a few seconds came back and stood in front of him. They were so curious, so cute.

What's even cuter is how they eat it. Look!

The older ones, on the other hand, were so happy with the notepads and ballpens we bought for them. I wish they'd have more access to important things like these.

And just as we were about to go to a small restaurant at the end of the village, we saw this cute baby.
