I stopped taking food pictures as soon as it became clear it would go on like this for the next few months (sandwiches, noodle soup, rice with veggies, sandwiches, noodle soup, rice with veggies, …) The photos are really about the places and memories that are different from the everyday – which was in Phonsavan for five rather unexpected months, except for some small escapades to Sayabouly, Luang Prabang, and Vientiane. Delicious!
