Weekly Photo Challenge – Every Day Life Along the Mekong River, Vietnam

Life Along the MekongThe Mekong River delta covers a large portion of southwestern Vietnam from the Cambodian border to the South China Sea. Daily life revolves around the river and many villages are accessible only by water. People live on or over the river and their days revolve around growing, buying, or selling rice, fruits and vegetables, or fish.
