Just driving along and BAM! there's a bad ass temple!
Vietnam has to have been one of the most beautiful places I have seen in Southeast Asia. Yes, there are temples and beautiful scenery. Patrons of those temples purchase small fish to "give" as offerings into the ponds there. The streets are swept by the villagers, the streets are lovingly cared for and the artwork and detail of every building, step and even street corner are a wonder. But... the most beautiful part of the country was the people. Speaking only a few Vietnamese words, I was helped at every corner it seemed. Smiles abounded, children laughed and families shared their food with us.
