Prev / On the River Taxi Next

The water taxis are but one of many users of the river. There are also "long boats" (like those down in the islands), "really long boats" (think long boat, but way longer, skinnier, faster, more colorful, and more dangerous), "big fat boats" (almost like Chinese junks), "real-life paper boats" (looking like the paper boats you used to make and float in the gutter, the kind that don't appear to have a front or back or any engine, yet somehow get around anyway), "transverse taxis" (ok, I'm making that name up, but the taxis that go directly across the river are wide and tall and short), and so on. By "so on", I mean what's pictured: floating logs meandering down the river, untowed by anyone, topped by a waving flag and two guys standing bored and patiently.
