      Fields In Need Of Water
    by Mikebb

When we visited the rice paddies seemed to be suffering from a lack of water. We had been in Thailand rural districts for 10 days and they all looked parched. Our visit to the Golden Triangle revealed the Mekong River at its lowest level for decades.

Many locals said the low level was not caused through the recent dry weather, but through the dams constructed by the Chinese Government upstream.
