Adios Mekong!

It's our last day on the river, and what a fun trip it's been. After finishing the last blog post, there was a lot of interest in seeing more photos, so I figured I'd share just a few more images from this trip with you guys before flying home!

The kids get put to work at an early age. These are Trey Riel fish, which make up one of the most significant fisheries in Cambodia. During the month of January, this one species comprises nearly 50% of the entire catch in the country. It was very exciting being here during the busy time of year when fishing activities were going on all over the place, both day and night!

Another beautiful sunset. In many ways they're all the same, but every night you stand outside and watch the sun go down it's impossible not to life the camera and snap a few shots... Kind of reminds me of living next to the Flatirons in Boulder. Even though I've got a thousand photos of those rocks, I always find myself shooting more and more... they're just so captivating! Same goes for Mekong river sunsets, beautiful!

Floating village near Chau Doc, Vietnam. These people live in their floating houses year round. In some of the larger floating villages, they even have buildings for gas stations, schools, salons, etc... it's really interesting taking a boat through and seeing how these people live on the water!
