Pic of the Week 6 and 7

I am way behind with the Pic of the Week category again. My apologies for that. I selected two great pictures representing the Pic of the Week 6 and 7. This time no temples, no sunsets and no people. It’s all about the animals. Here you go!

The Don Dhet herd taking a collective bath.

This was taken during my lengthy stay on Don Dhet, Laos. There is one big herd of oxen which lives on the island. I never found out who they actually belong to, but they roam the island completely free and can feed wherever they want. Sometimes you can even spot them around the bungalows and walking in the village.
One day I rode my bicycle around the island in search of some good picture opportunities. I was on my way back to my bungalow when I suddenly saw the herd taking a collective bath in the Mekong. It was so funny since you could really tell that they were enjoying it a lot. They sometimes completely submerged, holding their breath for more than a minute. I had some more encounters with these guys but this one was by far the funniest.

A surprising encounter in Cambodia.

This one was taken in Cambodia, where I am at right now. I don’t want to say anything about it right now to keep it a little bit mysterious. I will explain in the article after the upcoming Laos Roundup. Stay tuned.
