Answer: Someone once left a comment on the blog a few years ago asking what seemed to be a snooty or rude question. The words were along the lines of "what makes you an expert on Laos?".
In my cheeky reply, I made clear that I never claimed to be an expert on Laos or Lao culture and that I too continually learn new things about it and choose to share it on the blog. And if I remember correctly, I jokingly ended the response by signing it with The Expert crossed out.
This is a part of the new ຖາມຫຍັງກໍໄດ້ Ask Anything Series here on Laoconnection.com where we're sharing the many questions people have asked us over the years from in-person conversations, email, Facebook, and the blog.
For those wanting to add to the conversation, your comments below the posts are welcome. Feel free to make contact in Facebook to ask questions. Most people don't want their names published and that wish will be respected.
