40. The procession of monks in Luang Prabang

Each morning at sunrise the monks from the various temples in Luang Prabang begin their traditional "procession" through the town - which has been performed ever since Buddhism arrived in Luang Prabang in the 14th century. As the procession begins at sunrise, there is not much light as the first monks arrive.
