May 2005: On John Gray's Sea Canoe, Andrew & Reachel spent a day exploring oyster caves, bat caves, lagoons, and Laos Katrong. This festival traditionlly occurs on the 11th lunar month. Natives pay homage to the water by building flower recepticles and floating them into the sea with their wishes for the new year. Our guides helped us to build our own katrongs and fed us the best meal of our trip.
