There was an event over the weekend, hosted by a group who helps disabled people in Asia, and they were selling fabric from Laos. They look very traditional and beautiful, of course, but more than that, I was surprised how less I know about Laos. I know, instead, there are quite a few groups who try to eliminate poverty in the country. This time, it was a great chance for me to know my old friend is involved to help people in a village who need to build a bridge as infrastructure. It can be a simple thing for some other side of the world, but I believe it is a big job in this country.
