Living in the flood
In Prachinburi many towns and villages are flooded. It is not very convenient and it is hard to move around, but there are still fun things to do. (Photos by Pattanapong Hirunard.)
For little children, it is like having one big, very BIG swimming pool.
It is nice when an older guy takes you for a boat ride on the street in front of your house.
You can also go on a boat ride with your friends. But stay out of the deep water! I hope these kids can swim.
Some children still have to help their parents but at least they can finish early because they don’t have to go to school.
When you get older, you can go out on the highway and fish. The kilometre-maker is a good place to sit. Do you think he is catching any fish? Let’s take a look.
Finally, if you go for a walk, take your pet dog with you.
