Novices in a monastery beside Mekong

Novices gets their first lessons in a monastery near Vientiane.
All Lao boys are expected to become novice monks for at least three months of their lives, to bring spiritual merit to themselves and their family. Most come from impoverished, rural communities and move to larger towns to learn Buddhist values and gain a more superior education.

The photo was captured in 2001 by a conventional Ektachrome 50 ASA slide film and scanned with a NIKON CoolScan 5000 ED.
