Foreign Friday

Laundry Day
near Bangkok, Thailand
December 1979
I loved gently gliding down the river and snapping photos of the surroundings. As you can see the water was smooth and slow moving.

The river was so calm that it wasn't unusual to find children maneuvering boats to go on errands or to just have some fun.

I loved this area of Thailand: gorgeous scenery and friendly people

  4. The water is so beautiful that it looks unreal. I love the photo of the clothes hanging on lines! I remember helping my mother hang clothes on the line while we talked about things that were happening in my life. It is a lost fellowship that mothers and daughters rarely share these days.

  5. Can you imagine the outrage if anyone let their children do that here???

    I was basically living on my own by age 14. Now my parents would be in jail ---- well, maybe they should have been way back then too. But, nobody thought it odd that my parents would go away for two or three weeks and leave me home alone.

  6. I can see why you loved this area, Nancy. It's beautiful. The children are really cute and look so happy. Reading the previous comments I have to say that I live in Oregon where it wasn't uncommon for children to come and settle on their own. One family's grandfather was 12 when he came here with his 14 year-old brother and settled.

  8. I can see why you loved it here. We've gotten away from giving children responsibilities like these children seem to have.
