From the Bizzare to the Unreal - 500 monk morning alms walk

The monks seeking morning alms is a solemn, verging on sacred Buddhist ritual.  I wonder how any of us would feel, if during one of our most sacred ceremonies,  complete strangers invaded our space and began snapping photos?

The monks share what little food they receive durng their morning alms walk, with these young boys who come from extremely poor families in Luang Prabang.  Personally, I had never seen this before..... young children holding plastic bags to get food from the monks.
