Photographer's Note

The sequel...
6 in the morning, on a small Isaan village's main road. Monks are on their daily walk to receive food gifts from villagers.
Every morning people start the day preparing food to offer to their wat's Monks.
From rice to fruits and drinks to cooked meal, depending on what you afford to give.
The main thing remains to be part of the offering whatever you own, a way to start the day with good luck.

Most of people have farming activity, mainly rice agriculture as they most own land to grow it.
Out of the season, most of the men are working on construction sets, sometimes far away from home.

Poorest part of Thailand, Isaan has its own culture and language (called overthere 'Lao') a mix of Thai and Laotian. People are highly welcoming and food (even if highly spicy) is a must.
Isaan, Buriram province, Thailand.

Isaan (อีสาน) is the northeast region of Thailand.
It is located on the Khorat Plateau, bordered by the Mekong River (along the border with Laos) to the north and east, and by Cambodia to the south. To the west it is separated from Northern and Central Thailand by the Phetchabun mountain range.
