Fishing.

14 August Sakhon Nakhon - Sawang Daen Din – 90 km

It was 10h00 by the time I left as I was in no hurry anymore to get to Vientiane. Since Tania was not coming to Thailand any longer my plans have changed considerably; I did not, in fact, have to go to Vientiane to extend my Thai visa anymore. I could also go to China as planned if I so wished! I just need to get to China before 5 September!! Never a dull moment! Ummmm....what to do, what to do??? I still had about 200 km to go to the Thai/Lao border and therefore had some time to think about my next move.
The Northeastern part of the country had a tremendous amount of rain at the beginning of August, whole towns were flooded, and there were concerns about dam walls breaking. Although I escaped most of the rain I crossed rivers still in full flood! There was a serious amount of water coming down those rivers. Locals were making use of the opportunity to fish with all conceivable means of fishing.
Wonderful POV and a very different view of life on the water.

Love that intricate set-up of poles and nets. Admire your adaptability which has obviously stood you in good stead.

Great capture of a fisherman who obviously knows what he is doing. Not sure now if Tania is joining you or not.
