    Ah i was thinking more about the standing water more inland I forgot there were mountains in the north. I shouldn't have I was up there a couple of times. By the time those water ran about a hundred miles there were pretty poluted about fifty years ago. I dont know how much they are working on anti polution there. I really haven't paid any attention.

    Anyway if you get any strange skin breakouts see a doctor lol

    oh yeah, i avoid waters around bangkok like the plague. but we were literally at the source of the river, so it wasn't bad (i'm crossing my fingers)

    i would just die if i fell in a river somewhere.

    probably literally die.... I refused to drink the water from those water buffalo carts with jugs on the back. It is where I learned to drink liquor without ice even. Only Ice I ever used was to cool down beer.

    The water in our compound tasted like a swimming pool and I was thrilled by it.

    Comments about the pictures
    The small format makes it a bit difficult to appreciate, however...
    My first reaction was, I´d like to see two different views
    1) a really wide angle...the pool is lower center...jungle reaching up
    2) something MUCH closer...maybe near water lever with a longer lens

    Water
    1) In central Africa I swam in a mountain stream which I thought was safe...it turned out some dude had just watered his 100 or so camels not far upstream. I nearly died from the massive parasite infection.
    2) I used to put iodine in my drinking water, and added just a teaspoon of Jack Daniels per litre - made it a) safe and b) drinkable.

    Before I drink from any cold, tasty, free-flowing stream, I remind myself that there are fish screwing in there and I go buy bottled water.

    i like these because the soldiers look so content in them. But at the same time the situation seems kind of sad. I think it's because they are in black and white maybe.
