Poling a dugout ferry across the river in ratanakiri

Dugout canoes act as ferrys across this section of the Sesan river. Note the guy sitting on his motorbike on the boat. 50 cents gets you across.

Occasionally, something will go wrong and it’ll capsize, gracefully depositing the motorcycles on the river bottom. I’ve known a couple of people who it’s happened to; in fact, two of my dad’s dirt bikes went to the bottom once 15 years ago. During dry season it’s not that deep (sometimes less than 10 feet), but imagine swimming down to get a 200 pound motorcycle. Whew.
