Hi All,

I'm currently in the Mekong Delta and here are the pictures from there. I only have 15min before meeting friends for dinner so this entry will be short. Will post more once I have more time (probably in Phou Quoc).

It started raining in the middle of my Mekon cruise. The river got quite rough and I jammed my finger between 2 boats, hurted quite a bit but no permanent damage.

Brownish Mekong water. Its quite warm to dip your feet in.

I didn't have the guts to take a picture with it. Snakes scare the living *&%$ out of me.

@ night, by 10pm, the entire street is deserted.

Go on... take a guess. What is it?

Note the fruit on the bamboo pole. It is their form of advertising. IT shows the potential buyers what the boat is selling.

Looks like a family of boats: Daddy, baby, and Mommy.
