Shrewsbury Library hosts Mekong River Journey
September 24 @ 2:00 pm
Shrewsbury – Join the Shrewsbury Public Library on Saturday, September 24th at 2:00 p.m. for this program with world traveler Bob DeCoteau. Bob will share his experiences from his trip up the Mekong River from Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), Vietnam to Siem Reap, Angkor Wat, Cambodia, during which he traveled by small boat to get a better view of life along the riverbank.
Participants will experience the growth of the modern city of Saigon and trace the history of this fast-growing metropolis, then cross over into Cambodia and see life on one of the largest lakes in Southeast Asia, known as the Tonle Sap. While in Cambodia, attendees will spend time at the largest religious temple monument in the world, Angkor Wat.
