Lotus taking over rivers

This is a huge lotus patch on a river on the outskirts of Bangkok.  Okay, I'm not moving.  I'm actually on a pair (riverboat restaurant) watching the river flow by me.  We are upstream from the ocean.

There are no flowers with the lotus, but you can tell how thick it is.  It is said that you could sort of walk on it, but if you fall in, well, that's another story.  Due to the drought, the rivers is actually running low.

Between the patches of green, you see catfish.
