Photographer's Note

Vendor at the Bus station in Pakse, the region most important market town, as the hub of far South, in Laos.

In spite of the high temperatures she is full covered with clothes, including gloves. Any westerner would be covered in sweat, the clothes completely wet but locals are used too this.

This is typical dress of men and women field workers, especially on pineapple plantations. It's a necessity to protect themselves not only from the sun, but from the prickly spins of the fruit as well. Also helps to breathe on the dusty roads the baht buses and other vehicles stir up on the roadways.

Taken while waiting to enter in the transportation that would take us 3h south to Si Phan Don archipelago, close to the border with Cambodia.
