Just watching the river and it's people.
Today we made our border crossing to Vietnam. The customs officers came aboard and cleared everyone by our passports that were left at the pursers office when boarding. My day was spent onboard the boat, mostly cruising the Mekong, watching the world of the river dwellers. I sat on the upper deck reading by the pool, taking the cool plunge when it got too hot. Whew that felt good! There was a cooking demonstration, an ice cream social, mixology class, none of which I attended. I needed to decompress after all the long days of touring. The boat moored off Tan Chau, a small city with a lot going on. We could hear lively music going on from the shore at night.
