Community in a local pristine village in Laos at the banks of Mekong river

On my travels I encountered many different sorts of communities. Four and a half years ago on a boat trip on the Mekong river from Huay Xai at the Thai Lao border to Luang Prabang we stopped on route at a local, very pristine, basic village without electricity which lies at the banks of Mekong river. At that time locals there apparently hadn’t seen many westerners before. They were shy but also curious at the same time and took us into their village which only consisted of a few wooden huts. Especially the kids seemed to love being photographed and gathered themselves around us to watch our results.

Almost two years later I travelled through both federal states of Malaysian Borneo, Sabah and Sarawak. In Sarawak our local guide Ahmadul from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, took us to a school, nearby the Iban Longhouse where we stayed overnight. It was sort of a residential school where the Kids of the Iban people lived together in a community outside the school holidays .
