Chan

Chan takes off her shoes and lays them neatly by the door of her wooden home by the river. The shoes of her “brothers” and mother are there, so she knows they are in the house. Chan’s two “brothers” lost their father in fighting years ago, and their mother died of AIDS. Chan’s family has taken them in. It makes the house a bit crowded, but Chan knows that the boys would beg on the streets and maybe starve if someone did not give them a home. The boys are already a help in the garden, and when they get older, they will be a big help to Chan’s father as he fishes the river.

Getting Around

Chan’s family lives in a village along the banks of the Mekong River. To travel, they sometimes take a boat down the river. When they need to go inland, they walk, or sometimes they hitch a ride on a passing buffalo-drawn cart. People who can afford them often use bikes or motorcycles to go longer distances.

Houses on Stilts

Since Chan’s family lives near the river, their house is built on stilts. When the water rises, the house is safe because the water flows right under it! The smell of fish is always present, but Chan is used to it. Her father fishes to provide a living for the family, and the children often help. Father sells the fish at market, and Chan gets to eat fish almost every day. To preserve the fish, Chan’s mother covers it with spices and lays it out in the sun to dry.
