We hired a tiny wooden Batman boat to take us around the river. There were all kinds of huge tankers and liners. We went through tiny canals where people built streets on the water. The people in stilt houses were washing clothes and swimming. I tried saying hi to as many people as possible. I think I fell a little short of 1,000.

River Sampan Boat Trip: 9.5

Got stuck in a huge torrent, so didn't do much. But I did go on an 11-hour bus ride to Malaysia. Quite a few people ask to take a picture with me. Is it the pallid skin, beard, or lip ring?
