Every morning, farmers and fishermen take their produce to the markets by boat along the river that runs through Hoi An.
At the bottom of my garden is a busy harbour little boats like this are moored on home made bamboo jetties that are hidden amongst the water coconut groves. The farmers grown flowers, fruit and vegetables and are up before dawn to pick and wash everything ready for market.
The oars have a handle that enables the boat person to row standing up, sitting down or even with their feet sometimes! There are eyes on the front of these little wooden boats that help the boats to find their way home or, maybe, to scare seas monsters!
