LAOS, NOVEMBER 2015
Transgender Show in Boten, there are 2 shows x day and it is always empty.
Through landscapes worthy of a vintage painting and with a driver who dodges potholes and Chinese caterpillars shouting ‘rock and roll’ Boten appears in the horizon. A surreal ghost city on the border with China, which has become part of China in many ways even the time zone is set to Beijing, whose history is a kind of metaphor of Laos: from village to city-casino and today, apparently abandoned and now converting to a hub of the Asia-wide trade.
