Rivers & canals are the highways & byways of Thailand. Known as "Klongs", these waterways are at the very core of Thai life. On these waters, vendors sell their goods, parents take kids to school, & saffron-robed monks paddle door-to-door to receive their morning alms. To get a glimpse into this way of life, we took a long-tailed speed boat past the stilt houses to the famous Floating Market. En route, we passed people bathing, washing fruit, doing laundry--all in the same canal. An eye-opening experience into Thai culture.
