Syuru Village - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 8 May 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

These two Orion passengers were very quick to befriend the locals. Get the kids on side and you win over the whole village!

Over the next week or two, I take a walk around Syuru and meet some of its people. The village extends over the mangroves. Built above the tidal river, a network of boardwalks and wooden platforms serve as roads, paths and market squares. Houses rise up on stilts out of the tidal swamp.
