We have our own chef who creates the most amazing dishes from a small kitchen at the back of the boat. I'll definitely be bringing some recipes home, lots of veggie dishes with coconut & spices, excellent.
We spend the day slowly drifting through the backwaters watching life on the river bank and spotting fantstic birds, kingfishers & parakeets.
We fix up our own mossie net in the bedroom but there are surprisngly few about. We are treated to some thunder and ligtening and a few spots of tropical rain in the evening. It's hotting up. Once we've moored up in the evening we hear chanting from a temple drifting over the paddy fields and some children singing from a nearby riverside house.
