Woman Washing Clothes In The Small Stream

Woman washing laundries in the river

The woman stood in the midst of the small river

Shot in the city of Muang Sing, Laos.

This town was small. So I came out of the town soon after strating walking. The rice fields spread in the outskirt. And the small river, probably it was a drain flew along the country road. I found an elderly woman washing a fabric in the small stream.

She hit the fabric again and again till it became clean. The fabric was probably a sinh, a Lao traditional garment for women. Because the locals didn't have any washing machines, the laundry was still an exhausting labor for women here.
