"Baci" Laos Local Custom Tip by o0pyromancer0o

Laos Local Customs: 85 reviews and 82 photos

 
 

Whenever someone they care about goes on a longer journey the Laotians tie several strings around the wrists of the traveller in order to, as far as I understood, securely fasten the spirits of his organs to their proper place so they don't get lost somewhere along the way - very comforting to know. (On a more practical level some of them may also have money attached).
