Sorry to keep banging on about canals, everyone must be sick of them, but I have a big interest in the subject as I have hundreds of miles of them in Thailand.
Problem is, most are irrigations trenches - some man made - from very big to very small. Most aren't canals in the sense of Amsterdam with boats, although some are. In fact the term "khlong" - the local word - is the perfect one for what these things are. Does anyone know if there is a tag I could use for these? Something under man_made perhaps?
