Laos is actually filled with minority ethnic groups. I got really confused when trying to research about them. Turns out a lot of them are refugees in some sense, also dispersed throughout Thailand, Myanmar and Vietnam. Weird how country lines that are decided by people can just cut through and divide their land completely disregarding their way of life. Sadder still they don’t seem to completely accepted by the country they are in.
