Photographer's Note

another oldie

This picture was taken on board of the old slow, rickety rackety ferry from Rach Gia to the island of Phu Quoc.

Most passengers are inside, the boy is outside, on deck, looking in. He had the better position.

Phϊ Quốc is a large Vietnamese island west of the Mekong Delta, not far south of Cambodia.

It is famed for its black pepper and fish sauce. Both combine sublimely with locally caught squid. Mmm...

These days tourism is a big part of local life, especially since the airport was opened for regular air links to Ho Chi Minh City (and Rach Gia). Plans are under way to open up Phu Quoc airport for international connections.

I guess that old rickety rackety ferry doesn't run anymore...

I was in doubt whether to go for the colour version or the bl/w one. I include the bl/w in the WS, so you can let me know if I made the wrong choice.

With apologies to the bl/w fans.
