This is a guest post by the owner of the bookstore holding the competition:


My name is Isabel Dréan, I’m a filmmaker. Years ago, I came to Laos for 2 days and ended up staying for 10 years by opening the first licensed bookstore following the communist era. L'Étranger, Books and Tea has been listed in Lonely Planet's guide and the blue list one year (I think it was 2004).

Now time has come to close this chapter of my life. But instead of selling the traditional way, I launched an international competition to find the right person to take over this dream life I’ve created in Laos. I'm playing matchmaker for my bookshop.

I believe with the current political climate in the world that many people would be inspired by my story and who knows, maybe the person I’m looking for is amongst them.

Hopeful applicants can submit their audition-video and tell me why they are the one. A lucky winner will get my two businesses: bookstore & café and gallery, free rent for the first year, a motorcycle, a foreign investor resident visa and $10,000 in cash. Everything to start a new life in the heart of South-East Asia. The competition will run until August 31st. Submission fee is $100. It is a really great story about someone building a dream life and giving the chance to someone else to benefit from it.

I would love to share my story with as many people as possible to find the right person for this adventure. I hope you find my story inspiring.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Have a great day,

Isabel Dréan
