We’re back in the US now enjoying seeing everyone and doing most of the things on my top 5 list. It has been surreal jumping back into American life. Some of my favorite quotes from the kids, “ooh, these stairs are so comfy!” (talking about the carpet). And Talia excitedly telling everyone that the bathroom has hot water.
I wanted to share these pictures from our last weekend adventure before we left. This Lanten village is only a 10 minute bike ride from our house. It amazes me how close they are to town, but that they still maintain so much of their culture and tradition, even wearing their traditional dress.
An old man working in his rice fields. A beautiful little girl with her traditional clothes on. Even though the pants he’s wearing look like jeans, they are actually the traditional pants that the men wear. Hanging out laundry. Rice storage house Quite the load! I enjoyed chatting with the ladies and bought a couple of beautiful handmade souvenirs from them. They hand weave and indigo dye their own fabric. Lots of little babies! We always enjoy our time in the villages. It feels like a slower pace of life with plenty of time to sit around and visit. People here are always so friendly.

Have you ever made something for yourself to wear? Did you actually wear it?
