My guide, Votah, insisted that we see the Floating Village one afternoon after lunch. I was less than enthusiastic envisioning some "cultural visit setup" where I would be hit upon from all sides to buy Stuff. I am SO glad I got to do this! We went in a rickety old boat down the Seam Reap River to Tonle Sap, one of Asia's largest fresh water lakes. The flow of the lake actually changes direction twice a year and its size changes dramatically several times a year, too. I was there towards the end of the dry season, so the river and lake were small, comparatively. It is home to gobs and gobs of all kinds of fish (how's that for a statistic?) Anyway, there is a huge community of floating Nomads that live on the lake! There was a school and a church and stores...and everything you could think of. At our stop (I was grateful I had grabbed lunch before we headed out, hehe) young children were bobbing in the water in big pans and holding snakes--$1 per picture--which I gladly paid. I thought you might enjoy the picture of the display of wines for sale--beside the dried gator meat...yuuuuummy. Oh, and look for a baby in a hammock in one of the boats; you'll spot him/her by her toes poking out. ....And check out the quilt!
