I know some of the people who see me often are probably tired of hearing stories about Vietnam. I packed a huge amount of fun and culture into my time there (and more than my fair share of delicious food). Even though it’s been a year since I was there, I still haven’t full gotten through all my thoughts and observations.
Yep, I’m far from done yapping about Vietnam. Today, I’ll let the photos do the talking. These are a few random Mekong Delta photos that capture the essence of the place in all its variety. Enjoy!
Paddling in small boats is a super way to get around the edges of the Mekong Delta.
Kitties on the Mekong!
Quite a few people still live aboard their boats. It was a pleasant time of year, and I would’ve spent a few nights on one of these boats!
I guess this is some weird abandoned amusement park on the Mekong Delta. It’s the sort of place I would’ve tried to learn more about if I had more time.
If you want to be virile and manly, take a swig of rice wine that’s had a cobra marinating in it. Libido and potency guaranteed!
One of the many boats trawling about. Notice the eyes on the bow? We saw those on a good number of similar boats.
Sarah can’t resist touristy shenanigans if they involve holding a huge snake.
If you want to experience the Mekong Delta, there are plenty of tours from Ho Chi Minh City. Have fun!
