    Are all these paintings your personal collections? I really like the last oil painting on the canvas. It reminds me of my childhood… I grew up around the corner from Thatluang.

    That is an ideal world but lao government need to change the law for xpat to go back home and able to own proprty and work so at least we can assist improving in education, economic and social structure up to par with neiboring countries. Lao government need to embrace xpat.

      As of right now…. Not much of a chance that things will changes… Those guys are in the office are old timers and very stubborn folks….Their feelings toward the xpat is mostly negatives and runs deep in their vain. Until the younger generation start to take over the office, I won’t expect any changes.
