This is a great VCD on the opening ceremonies for the Sam Neua City Pillar, the Nuaykeo. There are lots and lots of different shots that give one a great feel for Sam Neua. As we write in our Nuaykeo section of our Yahoo store, "The name Nuaykeo has special meaning to the Lao. In fact, on May 17, 2008, Huaphan province in the north of Laos hosted an official celebration for the dedication of a city pillar in Xamneua district which represents Nuaykeo, because at the top of the pillar is a multi-colored crystal ball. This crystal ball symbolizes a popular folk song, Xamneua Pennuaykeo , describing Xamneua as being rich in natural beauty and comparing it to a glittering ball, like the one created especially for the province. The song goes on to tell how the people of the province enjoy strong friendships among all ethnic groups, and how in their various colorful costumes they resemble a jeweled ball."
