On the Mekong again, Vietnam – 28 June 2007

We are now three hours from the Cambodian border on a slow wooden boat. This morning we were up bright and early to an average breakfast where my friend found a small bug in his bread. YUM! We were also told that we would be on the ‘slow boat’ and if we wished to catch a ‘fast boat’ it would be an extra $20 US Dollars each, ouch!

 

Following all that fun, we took a canoe ride around a floating village and had a look at a Fish Farm. The Fish Farm was located under the floating house and was filled with Snapper. Next we took a ride over to a small village called Cham. This village is home to an Islamic minority and had a small mosque. There was definitely a sense of being in another tourist trap and we payed too much for a few scarves, but oh well. One little girl couldn’t stop harassing me to buy some waffle biscuit things from her. I played along with the whole not buying any for a little while. Once we were about to leave, I gave her some money and that was that. Now we have a long journey ahead, but in late afternoon we will finally arrive to Phnom Penh…

 

ADIOS VIETNAM!

The World is an amazing place filled with adventure, awe and excitement. As a child I dreamt that I would see every country, every crevice of the globe. And now? Now I continue to fulfil that dream...I would like to share that journey with you in some small part...
