Morning Market

Morning Market
Forget supermarkets, in Luang Prabang the street markets are held every morning and are where you will find almost anything you'd care to eat (and a bit more besides, see some of the PiPs!). Markets such as these are common and, I suspect, are similar to the recently much-discussed "Wet market" in Wuhan, China.

A fantastic documentary, George!
However, compared to documentary reports on markets in Wuhan, China, the markets of Luang Praban still seem to be reasonably orderly and hygienic.

Thank you very much. I suspect they're fairly similar in style, though there may well be differences in what's available - I saw no bats here.

A fabulous series George. Yes definitely some things we would not choose to eat and I wish the wet markets were a thing of the past also. An interesting look into a very different way of life.
Take care.

has replied to Rosalyn Hilborne club
Thank you, Rosa. I think the main thing in these places is to stick to food which has been cooked. It's certainly different to the average supermarket though!

A great series George and also an eye opener for anybody not seeing markets like this before. No freezers keeping things cool here -just a slop of water no doubt but normally it all goes OK for the locals.

Keep safe. Herb

Excellent! But there is doubt about bats, pangolins and wet markets as Wuhan is more north than the traditional locations for these viruses. Still, I don't think anyone really knows (unless some Chinees officials know!)

has replied to Andy Rodker club
Many thanks, Andy. I'd be surprised if bats in Asia don't go further north than Wuhan, as it's slightly closer to the equator than Sydney and the bats here extend as far south as Melbourne.

There are certain market stalls that would be best avoided I fear. Nevertheless you have shown us the colourful culture and general busyness here.

There are probably some things there I wouldn't eat, but I love these outdoor markets and wish that our culture wasn't as concerned about everything being sanitized and wasn't all Macdonalds and fast food.

Just great !
That a planetary virus has emerged from these ancestral traditions shocks my common sense. Or in this case it is only natural, and already common in the past of mankind.
It is not as dramatic a scourge as has transformed our sensibilities and our vulnerable western societies...... We definitely need to get back to our natural roots: this is the only lesson, in my opinion, of this Covid.
I do like your beautiful and so evocative series.

Thank you for your visit and kind comments, Eric. An unlikely benefit of the virus "self isolation" has been that I have revisited my photos of Laos from some years ago - after I returned home from the trip I became busy and had never really looked at most of them!
