Pong River, Amphor Nam Pong south 23.10.11 #thaifloodeng

The more I see the more I want a very special place in hell for these people. Not fire water, and let them stand on coconuts to keep their noses above water. Rai upon rai of rice ready to be harvested flooded, kilometer after kilometer of road flooded, 100s upon 100s of people homeless. Not one of these road is properly marked and people drive for miles and then must return. Some drive on when they see the signs. When I ask they tell me you cannot believe anything the government sez. Another problem no one seems to mention is the livestock. All their grass, feed whatever is underwater. Well at least they aren't carrying smartphones that they do not know how to use like their uniformed cousins.
