Yes, that is her, an absolute delight, have known her now for just over two years after having been with a Thai girl for a similar time - leaves the Thai girl in the starting blocks, no comparison..

 

The Lao village was so poor it made the Thai rice farm family look like millionaires..Never felt comfortable with two Thai visits but in the appressive heat, unsettled stomach (barely eating for 5 days), no refrigerator for a cold drink (i think an old tv and fan were the only elecrical appliances) i loved every moment of it and look forward to returning..

Good pictures, it certainly shows another side to life, I had a similar experence when I went to the TGF's village in central Thailand, a bit of a culture shock and the heat took getting used to (no aircon), made sleeping hard. Meeting her parents was interesting I spoke little thai and them no english still we managed to comunicate, the children were neat, well manored and were quite keen to meet me and try to speak english it was a fun experence once the culture shock wore off.

With all the posts about how the girls try to rip us off and scam poor innocent farrang its nice to see the environment some of these girls come from and why they need to support their families.

 

Great photos. :GoldenSmile1:

My wife is from a village about an hour south of Pakse, and I have spent a lot of time down around those parts and its just like the photos in this thread. Poverty is a bitch and the place is so underdeveloped its like travelling back through time. The first time I visited my wifes village there was only one TV in the whole village and no one had a car and all the children went around in rags, it was a real eye opener for me. I was there for 10 days this March and I got some stomach bug and I couldn't eat nearly the whole time I was there, I must admit that after 5 visits the novelty has worn off and I won't be going back for many years...
