Day 35: Life’s a Beach

After 35 days of going, it was nice to finally have a day with nothing on the agenda. We took a taxi out to An Bang (pronounced On Bong) Beach early in the day and found a couple of lounge chairs under a bamboo umbrella. The little dot in the water to the right of my feet is Viktoria. Can you spot her


 Several bamboo bowl boats were lined up on the beach. Local craftsmen have been making the boats for centuries, using a mixture of tree resin and rice bran to waterproof the vessels. They seem impossible to manuever, but the bowl captains have mastered it!

On the left is the face of a man who's been traveling for 35 days, yet somehow his wife is looking radiant and energized. What gives?!
