The mother ship "Tara" we returned here for quite a nice lunch, I had fish and chips........I hope I don't regret it
Fish show, crocodile farm, tourist ripoff at Chong khneas

The flooded forest, in the wet season these trees are 3 metres under water
Fish farm, the people catch small fish put them in thes cane cages to grow them out before selling
The wharf area atKompong pluck, in the wet seson the water gets to just below the floor
another view
Handing out stuff to the kids.............this was worse than feeding seagulls chips, when Iregretfully tried it I was punched and kicked by the kids who missed out.....yeah I know what your thinking but it happened to everyone else as well..........Jan was so terrified/disgusted by it she wouldn't hand any out.
We walked to the otherside of the village and kids there were quite well behaved, it was only the kids who leived near the wharf
View down the "main street" during the wet season over 3500 people live here and the water is up to there floors but at the moment most of the families live out on the lake fishing
Kompong pluck trip
These are small prawns that caught not cooked just left out to dry to they go pink and dry out they are then gathered up and sold overseas............whats in that fried rice your eating?
Building boats in the village
Traditional methods with women working as well
I suppose they could be cute, when they are not trying to rip food off you
The white flecks are rubbish laying everywhere,although Jan used the toilet in one of the houses and said it was spotless
Rubbish and tourists
Boat yard
They loaded us in these boats and paddled through the flooded forest
This is us
Fishing nets
Back at Chong khneas, thes people =, mainly Viets live wholly on floating houses, schools and shops.
Kompong pluck trip Chong Khneas
 Thes kids paddled about 70 metres in these tins, You'll noticed one has a snake around her neck, they were callin out "Give me dollar, give me dollar"
