[chuck] in Art, Science, Tay, Vietnam, stilt house

These are what you have to climb up to get into a Tay stilt house in northern Vietnam. I had problems climbing up in full daylight. Can't imagine what it's like to come down in the dark, e.g. if you need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
