Monks walk across a bamboo bridge over a tributary to the Mekong. "People ask me 'where are the monks going?'"explains a guide. "The same places as you -- to school, to work, to go shopping. They wonder what you're looking for when you already have everything you need." The bridge becomes impassable when the Mekong rises, adding an extra hour to the monks' journey.
