Face of the Delta
Another happy lady in Vietnam. It must be something in the water.
After a short flight from Hoi An we arrived it HCMC aka Ho Chi Minh City aka Saigon. We decided to take a tour of the Mekong Delta which included the "floating market".
There were thousands of boats. Big ones, little ones, packed with everything from pineapples to pigs. Quite the show. The farmers were all there selling as much as they could 'cause Tet was less than a week away. Tet of course being the Vietnamese New Year.
We also saw them making rice paper and coconut candy at small farms. It was interesting watching them make use of every bit of the rice plant, even the husks were burnt and then the ash used as fertilizer.
Well enough of HCMC, we're off for some more beach time on Phu Quoc Island.
