If you are going to a big festival anywhere outside of the capital city, expect stares. Villagers will come in from all around the region, and they may not be so used to seeing folks that look so different from themselves. So, if you weren't already feeling a little looked at, you'll get a full dose at a festival. The teens may even stop in front of you to have a solid scope, as Lao people don't have the same discontent about blatant staring as we do in the west. Be cautious about approaching a cute toddler, as the sight of you may invoke tears, no matter how innocent your intentions! Try not to take offense to becoming an oddity--think of the attention as complimentary intrigue.
