This is Stung (river) Sen in Kampong Thom province. It is an important part of the people living along it. Tonle Sen is a major tributary of the mighty  Tonle (river) Sap.

I took this photo very early in the morning at the provincial garden park. The weather was cool and the road quiet. Only afew people were walking about. I caught this motorised boat steadily making its way into the river. A little later, another boat passed by and on the boat were a group of young boys merrily rowing it.

  2. What a marvellous blue sky! The carving in the foreground at right looks amazing – what is it??

    • Hi Red Nomad. The carving on the left of the photo is of a “naga”, a mythical 5-headed serpent that is said to be dwelling in the murky river waters. This carving is a common feature in many Khmer or Buddhist) structures.
