the people live on the river, use water from the river to wash, cook and drink and catch fish from the river, they have bamboo floats under the houses and also big plastic drums. The bamboo needs to be replaced every 5 years.
We got off the boat at the river side and had a wander up the street to the market

this man was selling Cambodian jelly, very popular. It is made from a river plant, is black and needs condensed milk and sugar added to it to give it some taste.
this lady sold medicinal herbs

Tinny our guide showed us dried fish, this one was rare and costs US$50 a kg. It was light so you would get a lot for your money and it would keep well.
Back on the boat
