Me too! Is that a newspaper? I think newspaper pages are an art form :)

Thank you for stopping by everyone! Yes, it's a newspaper and it's wrapped around the silk weaving loom that belongs to this woman http://www.flickr.com/photos/89183164@N00/449293351/in/set-72157601632881343/. I don't know why I didn't take a full-view photo of her but you can see me having a go a few frames later on my stream. That pic shows more of the loom.

I still have a shirt from Laos kicking around in my cupboard. I love the typography on it to bits and spent hours reading it on buses in Southeast Asia trying to work out what it said.

Which, it urns out, was "Beer Lao" :)

Richard- Sometimes that's all the Laotian you need to know!
