Ban Pahn, Bomb Crater Village

This was another village in Xieng Khouang that the group visited, in hopes of finding another place needing a preschool.  The “road” from Phonsavanh to Ban Panh made the road to Samneau seem like a pleasure cruise, and I had to walk around to clear my head.  It was crazy how after 30 plus years, there were still bomb craters here and there.  When we got there, the villagers were filling in a large crater, to build a volleyball/kataw field.  I bought some candy for the Hmong kids and as they were following me, they just happened to stroll into an empty bomb crater, which is shown in the photo below.
