I miss these kids already. I smile thinking of the smiles on their faces, their determination to pronounce a word, or read it out. I miss their love for being photographed, and their surprising skill using my camera. I miss kids who will let you carry them, who will sit you down and braid your hair because they want to and not because you asked them to. I miss the kids who invite you to the river like it’s their secret playground and they’re letting you into some place special, and they’ll hold out their hands to make sure you don’t slip on rocks and mud. I miss walking home after school with them, having them slip their hands into yours and gripping tight. I miss a lot of things about them.

      I was there for two weeks in December, part of a team from my college working on a project in a village three hours from Vientiane! We were refurbishing a library that was built by the team who went down in 2011, and we also taught the kids English, and it was a wonderful experience!

      I’d love to go back some time (:

      There are more pictures coming soon!

do you have reasons!
