Buddhist Monks Hiding from the Mid-day Sun Under Umbrellas along the Mekong River

At the end of Buddhist Lent (Awk Phansa) in Laos, the biggest dragon boat racing event (Boun Xuang Heua) in Laos, the Vientiane Boat Racing Festival is held on the Mekong River. The monks who have been pretty cloistered near their temples now get a chance to move about more freely and see the happenings. I saw these four guys, hiding under umbrellas from the hot sun, enjoying their day while watching the festivities.
