I have seen few of these Houseboats on my two day "slow boat" trip down the mighty Mekong river to the old Lao capital of Luang Prabang. The boat is cargo boat of a design that has been used for ages, as both a home and a means of earning a livelihood for the owner and family.

The slowly unfolding scenery, sand bars, buffalos, big jagged rocks and watching the unhurried life on the banks of the river, the time to think, have a nap, talk to fellow travelers - that what it's all about.

Jim, yes it is funny. I seen corrugated steel boxes with the Dish outside.

The way of life does not change much.

We had TV in the room, but I only watch a movie 2x in a week, so can not really tell you what is on.
