This is Kampong Ayer. It means water village. There are over 50,000 people live in the village that is built over the water. It has its own police force, library's, schools, fire department etc.
Here are two school children waiting to be picked up for school at a 'bus stop'.... or should I say boat stop. The boat is one of the many water taxi's that pick people up to take them where they want to go, usually across the water to the city nearby.
The 'School Bus'.
And this is the main entrance to one of the schools. The classrooms are to the right of the front steps to the school.
