Tonle Sap- The LARGEST fresh water body in SE Asia

On the Tonle Sap (a huge lake- the largest in SE Asia), there is a floating village. This is when the houses and shops and everything float like a raft. They tie the houses to the edge of the water, and as the water or fish move out they move with it. Can you imagine paddling your house out into the lake?
The first picture is of a boy going out on the lake, probably to fish.
The second picture is of me driving our boat! :)
And the third picture is of the recreational center. It's a basketball court that has been donated to the village.
