Sunrise and sunset on the Mekong River, Thailand.
This is a typical Thai longboat that the fishermen use from the village. Simple boats, they do the job well.
These small tadpoles are toads. They are becoming prolific here in Thailand and there have been many instances where people have gathered tadpoles or toads to makes sauces and people have ended up very ill from them.
There are little pools of water everywhere full of tadpoles. I don’t know if they are all toads but Tor said they were.
The day was coming to an end; the sun was setting over the mountain ridge.
Sunset and water reflection in Isaan on the Mekong.
I was up early to watch the sunrise as in Ubon Ratchathani it isn’t such a beautiful sight. Upstream on the Mekong.
Waiting for the sun to come up over the mountain in Laos.
The Sun, finally poking over the small mountain in Laos.
Enjoying the sunrise with man’s best friend. I have no idea whose dog it is but she was very friendly and hung around for a good hour.
Khun Da up early and sweeping the soil under the stilt house.
Isaan Village life at its best. Simple and as it should be.
