I am awake and up near dawn this morning and I
wander down to the river to check on the rising water levels.
I stand at the waterline where a six-inch curb is all that remains
to stop the mighty Mekong from pouring out into the street. Before
lunch it will all be underwater.
Two little girls have caught sight of me and are
following me down to the water. They are milling around trying
to appear casual as if nothing out-of-the-ordinary is going on.
Ho-hum. Just a normal, everyday morning down by the riverside.
Ho-hum. Just 2 small pairs of eyes watching every move I make.
