Lao New Year

  • April 1975
  • Watched by many children and other spectators, a palace official -- as part of paying his respects to an elephant, ridden by a Khmu' mahout -- is rubbing it at tethering post in front of Wat Visoun. Note white string has been tied around the post and bananas placed on it for the elephant.
