A man rests at a window at his floating river house in Chau Doc on the Bassac River in the Mekong Delta in Vinh Long, Vietnam.  The Mekong Delta has long been the watery  thoroughfare for the many villages that dot the riversides of the delta.  Many of the villages have floating markets where people can buy produce and other items from wholesalers.  Photograph by Douglas ZImmerman
