International Children's Day

Today is International Children's Day and many schools are closed. The Children's Cultural Centre in Luang Prabang has activities for children all day long. The photos show two girls practicing a traditional dance with their young teacher.

Notice that the girls are wearing Lao skirts, which are called "sinhs".

The music was a Lao song sung by their teacher.

Some of the other children watched the rehearsal, but some of the older boys played an energetic soccer game in the room next door.
