An Asian Stackie

Thought some of our readers might like to see this photograph from The Times today.   It’s from Northern Bangladesh and shows a boat on the Jamuna River loaded with dried grass.   The stacks are 60ft long and 10ft high and sometimes rest on two boats floating side by side.  And look the crew are up on top of it.   It’s an Asian Stackie.   Not sure what the one standing up is doing.   He could be desperately pulling on the strapping to stop the load shifting or maybe there’s some sort of controller to steer the boat.   The one sitting down looks every bit as if he has a mobile ‘phone clasped to his ear!img20181118_00240627
