Inspired by the previous posts, here are two marginal entries. The one at Lake Goldsmith seems not to have been a vendor van at all. Globe Hotel floats, but doesn't go to river clients: they come to it. The fire-hollowed stump contains the toilet. I guess that lots of owners of vintage wooden-hull ski boats call by in season, but I was there out of season, and took the photo from my boat before tieing up alongside. The van on the bank seems to be a mobile stage for bands.
I was in a fleet river voyage with the owner of an SA winery; at stops he had cellar-door sales from a genuine cellar: the hull of his large paddleboat, kept at a stable temperature by the surrounding water.
As promised, a mobile satay vendor. This is not Indooroopilly last year. This is Bangkok on a normal day.
There aren't many khlongs on the touristy east bank, and some have been filled to be come roads. This was on the west bank. There are cruises which also visit an orchid farm and a floating market, but I was on an express cruise, and got lots of photos of normal life on a khlong.
