Floating Gypsy village Thailand


Sky Watch for this week is from when we were in Thailand. We visited a floating gypsy village at Phang Nga, by long tail boats such as you can see at the side of photo, stayed for a meal and to meet some of the people who dwell over the water all their lives. A nice clear blue sky.
Do check out some of the other sky photos from around the world.

A whole village just floating on the water. Imagine the different way of life needed to make the day to day stuff work. Interesting.

We have houseboats on a pond where I live. They don't look anything like these houseboats! Nice place to live!

Interesting lifestyle these gypseys have - it would not be my first choice of a way to live. Looks like you live in a beautful part of the world. BTW the cheetah fur is not soft and silky. Probably like a German Shepherd

Hi Glennis, thanks a lot for visiting my tapir blog and leaving a comment. The more people learn about these unusual animals, the more they will care about keeping them from becoming extinct. It's hard to save an animal nobody knows, and this is basically the case with tapirs. You aren't the only one to discover them recently! :) All the best,

Sheryl

Sounds interesting What a great trip you must have had. In Holland in some cities there are also lots of people living on boats.

I have been to Thailand a couple of times, I didn't know about this village's existance. Maybe next time I will make it a point to check this out. Thank you for sharing this unique place.
