While Laos has as many faults as any other country, Laos is renowned for our unique culture, long and rich history, and our grace and pride differs enormously from the rest of the world.
We, as Laotians, are a race that get along well with each other, and with other people around the world. You'll find Laotians in many corners around globe, accepting foreigners in our country of Laos with open arms and making new friends, and there are Laotians living abroad for decades and immersing themselves in another country's way of life.
Whether we are a Lao person living in Laos or in a foreign country, whether we support communism or the Kingdom of Lan Xang, whether we like to eat sticky rice or bread, whether we work in a relaxing office atmosphere or trying to make ends meet in the sun, and whether we are alike and different in many ways,
one thing we all have in common as a Lao person is that we are proud to be LAO!
