is a lovely 81 min excursion through parts of Thailand, Burma, and Laos. The commentary is at times inane, but the photography is quite good. What I found of real interest was the Laotian stuff. So very little of Laotian art and architecture is available in the West. As with the above photos (thank you for those), we can see a richness that is different enough from both the Thai and Burmese styles.

There is freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning. If there were not this freedom from birth, freedom from becoming, freedom from making, freedom from conditioning, then escape from that which is birth, becoming, making, conditioning, would not be known here. -- Ud 80
