Photo Moment: Portrait of a Lao Woman

Lao Village Woman 

While trekking through Northern Lao, we happened upon a village high in the mountains.  There are still places in Asia where foreigners are a rare and unexpected treat.  This was one of those times.

I'm a chronically ill Canadian who has been living in Asia since 2003. I moved from China to Taiwan in 2006. I'm an experienced businesswoman and have worked in many leadership positions in Asia. In addition to my own work, I've been writing professionally about Asia, travel and health advocacy since 2007, providing regular content to publishing companies and travel publications in Asia and North America. I started writing about my health journey in 2009 after being diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS, which came with other massive health issues. These diagnoses were the start of my journey as a health advocate and patient leader. Since then, My Several Worlds has been recognized worldwide as a top site for AS, fibromyalgia, and chronic illness by WEGO Health and Healthline.

    I got stranded in a village in Laos over New Years a few years ago when the truck drivers decided not to pass by for a few days. I had this little room with press board walls, maybe cost about 2 dollars per night. I would take a chair down and sit in front of the small guesthouse. People of the village would come by with their children and point at me. It was surrealistic, as if I did not understand they was looking at me.
