Sorry, you said you’re what? Lao?

Ponmani Vongsay,

Every-time I tell someone I’m Lao they have no idea what I mean by that. I always have to explain that it’s a small country next to Thailand and Vietnam but that doesn’t mean I am either of those. Yes, Thailand is very similar to Laos but they aren’t the same.
