Dish washing in the Mekong

An entire day on a small boat can be inspiring. Anyway, it's certainly relaxing. The "captain" and his wive were good housefathers towards us. Mr. captain could find his way blindfolded through the canals, missing all the buzy fishermen and their huge nets spanned across the flows. Mrs. captain was happy to give away a good massage, was a nail painting expert and treated us with some fresh coconuts including their juice.

You can say we enjoyed the environment very much. The river, the people around or in it, the tiny houses, the animals (mostly cows with their cow boys) and the vegetation - lots of palm trees along the shore.

In Can Tho there's another floating market. This one is bigger and more impressive than the floating market of Cai Be. So if you have not so much time, skip the Cai Be floating market, but don't miss the market in Can Tho.

When we arrived in Can Tho the big golden statue of waving Ho Chi Minh was surrounded by water. The floodings were up to the main street and even in the side street where our hotel was. Luckily next day every street was walkable again instead of swimmable...
