Photographer's Note

My last upload showed the Kampong Ayer (Water Village) of Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, as seen from the minaret of the large mosque nearby. But of course I also had a closer look at the buildings on stilts and the jetties connecting them. Today's three photos were all taken in the Kampong Ayer.

As PaulVDV has pointed out, this village no longer exists. Where I walked along sometimes rather rickety jetties in 1976 people are nowadays walking on narrow roads or across lawns of a neat park.

To be honest, the main photo was taken just outside the water village, but I chose it because I thought it was the best photo. I can imagine these two men arguing about the quality of their motor-bikes. The agitated man seems to be making a gesture saying that his Yamaha is so much stronger and faster than his friend's Honda.

Both WS were really taken inside the water village. And all photos were scanned from Kodachrome slides.
