In September, Waterland commissioned the construction of a large boat/barge. The photo below shows 2 of the craftsmen who built the boat.
On October 15, 2016, we had a party to launch the new boat.
Friends, guests, and members of the staff celebrated the launch of the boat together.
The boat's designer was on board for the occasion.
One of the fishermen from the neighborhood kindly captained our first voyage. Once we were in the river, he discovered that the bamboo pole he brought was too short. This caused much amusement. Within a few minutes, another neighbor used his boat to deliver a longer bamboo pole.
The barge provides a beautiful place for drinks and watching the sunset.
