Finally A Really Good Picture



A nice picture, if I do say so myself.

This is on the River Kwae near the border with Burma. This is the famous river, known in America as the River Kwai, as in "Bridge on the River Kwai." If you ask a Thai about the River Kwai, they look at you and say, "what river? Is that in China?"

And there are two: the Kwae Yai and the Kwae Noi (the large and the small). They split apart and come back together fifty or sixty miles downstream. This shot is on the Kwae Noi. There's even more to it, it's a long story.
