Maria has been accompanying me on our normal shopping trips and few outings we are doing. She was able to capture these photos of the flooding along a main dyke here in the city. Many people live along this dyke which borders the rice fields.
Tents all along what's left of the high ground next to rice fields.
The Red Cross tents
Flooded homes in the middle of rice fields
Recently constructed tent city that we drove by.
Children playing near what's left of their homes, or nearby their parents working
One of many community water stations. Most people haul water back to their homes each day, because they don't have plumbing at home.
Dodging potholes, near the entrance to our church.
Never-ending maintenance on extremely old vehicles
Babies carrying babies
A familiar sight--streets packed with people, scooters, buses etc...
