They sure know how to decorate palaces in the Far East. It’s lavish.
The bar where the reporters congregated during the war. The Royal Palace.
The fishermen were out on the lake fishing. The Restaurant (which was a wooden hut) served very fresh fish – delicious!!
Fish paste (made from tiny fish), live fish in bowls (poor things), and dried fish.
We walked through the market to a little group of wooden buildings that housed the restaurant. The fish was beautifully cooked.
Beautiful floral offerings, monks and devotion. We left to visit another smaller temple.
The temple ruins were amazing. Everywhere you looked there were exquisite details, carvings, embellishments.
Weird folk tales of love and loss. Then mythical goddesses. All very symbolic.
As the water levels can rise twenty feet the houses have to either float or be built on long stilts. We passed floating towns.
It’s a nomadic community that lives on the river! Some build more permanent homes. I imagine there’s a lot of moving about!
