Photographer's Note

I took this picture in a Hmong village close to Ponsavanh and the plain of jarres. This region is known for the archeological site (jarres) but also for the secret war leaded by USA during the vietnam war. US air forces left thousands of non-explosed bombs (UXO or unexplosed ordnance)which still continue to kill people especially children.
Hmong people use rests of bombs to grow plants inside (flowpots)or to make walls, etc... You can see one of these big bombs (not dangerous anymore) just behind the small girl.
