Gong Perdamaian Dunia - World Peace Gong in Laos

I couldn't sleep. So I packed up my gear and went a walk by myself looking for interesting subject at 2:00 am in the morning.

Patuxai Monument
"It's already late, no entry sir," says the guard
"Just gimme 10 minutes ... please ... big dogs you have there..."

Patuxai - literally meaning Victory Gate or Gate of Triumph, formerly the Anousavary or Anosavari Monument known by the French as Monument Aux Morts) is a war monument in the centre of Vientiane, Laos, which was built between 1957 and 1968. Patuxai is dedicated to those who fought in the struggle for independence from France. In romanising the name from the Laotian language, it is variously transliterated as Patuxai, Patuxay, Patousai and Patusai. It is also given the name of Patuxai Arch or the Asian version of Arc de Triomphe of Vientiane as it has general resemblance to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris; however, it is typically Laotian in design, decorated with many Buddhist mythological figurines such as of kinnari (half-female, half-bird figures) - Uncle Wiki

Finally, I got the Peace Gong.
(Dua orang jaga Gong tidur dalam kelambu...nyamuk tak hengat. Pakkai jaga tu ada, kalau dak mau gak gi ketuk gong tu ... baru jaga satu dunia pakat bangun. )

Vientiane Laos , 8th June
2:36 am

Where is Vientiane?



 From a distance, at night, the street and the monument reminds me slightly of Paris too ... but of course with extremely peace.

What a Crazy Night!
