Into The Mangroves Near Bangkok

It's nice to get out of the Bangkok grid and see a little backwater scenery. Trade the bustle for the languid.

Taking in the delta. What's that woman doing, shouldn't she be in the boat? More later.

Global warming, climate change, your label here, in action. The mangroves used to stretch to the outer poles. Cruising a canal in the mangroves.

The rural skyline.

Our driver. His boat blessings to the gods.

Back to the woman overboard. She's harvesting cockles, a clam-like mollusk. The method involves blind dousing with your feet, feeling a cockle, shoveling it up, rinsing it off and throwing it in the bucket. A purely analogue operation. Amazing.
