The day was slowly winding down on Mekong River

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Cruising down the Mekong River on a romantic slow boat, with about 60 other travelers.

The day was slowly winding down on the River. I was beginning to worry, that we do not make it to the village, before sundown.

There are no lights on these boats and the river is very fast with rock sticking out everywhere. We made it on time!

The haze is from many fires, which are set to clear the river banks for vegetable plots!
