Cambodia called again and this girl answered!  It felt a bit like deja vu visiting old haunt and friends.
We took a Khmer boat across the Tonle Sap, one of the largest freshwater bodies of water in the world, to a floating village on the other side. Children waves from houses built from wood and crates or anything they could get their hands on and afloat on bamboo or barrels. Our homestay family had two small curly headed children and a crop of baby crocodiles they were raising to sell. One day as we were putting up the river for a swim we were waved over by a family who warned us not to get in the water because a bunch of crocodiles had gotten loose in the river. *Shiver* In the evenings we were lolled (sometimes jarred) to sleep by the sound of boat motors and the flow of the river and for a short time we lived the nomadic life of a floating village Rustic Pathways family.
