All the rivers run

A travel blog entry by pumpkinbeetroot


... system that weaves between rice paddies, palm tree lined river beds with the occasional shanty and the often found ladies of the houses beating any remaining grime from her days washing on a nearby rock. We've both negotiated some large deals over our time but nothing like the effort to acquire a house boat for the night. Boats were available as we inspected them, but upon agreeing on a deal, they suddenly became unavailable after the boat broker called his ...

Life on the backwaters
