Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

The River Ping is on the rise.  I decided to go in.

Risking my life, I waded through thigh high, yucky, mucky, snake-infested water.


Sand bags are holding so far but later, the businesses were not so lucky.


Team work brings in generators to power pumps.


Night Market stalls float down the street.

The water was rapidly rising and the current was swift. Yet there were many smiles.


There were those who had places to get to. Then I heard about the snakes!


This man made many trips across the flooded road with people in his water taxi.


Industrious monks secure the Temple. They're not worried about snakes!


The swollen Mae Ping River.


The locals got around any way they could.  (And so did the snakes, but I'm not worried about them...)


Holding on for the ride.


Time to bring in the pump!


The morning after.


The Military comes in to take charge.


A bird's eye view of flooded Chiang Mai.
