When I read this week’s challenge about Delta and change, I instantly remember a big river in Cambodia : Tonle Sap.
Have you ever seen a river flowing backward? Sounds impossible?
If you see the Phnom Penh’s map, Mekong river meets the Tonle Sap river. They merge and then divide into Mekong and Basaac river that flow to the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. It happens in dry season from November until June.
But during the rainy season from June-to October, the lower delta becomes flooded and cannot flow into the sea quickly enough to eliminate all the excess water. This causes the Mekong River to rise enough and reverse the flow of the Tonlé Sap River causing it to flow back to the north into the Tonle Sap lake.
The world is a scene of changes, and to be constant, in nature were inconstancy. (Abraham Cowley)
So are you still afraid of change?
