Vietnam: July 12 – 13, 2015

  • Can Tho & Mekong Delta
  • Currency: Vietnamese Dong
  • 9 hour travel day from Sihanoukville – Can Tho
  • Can Tho is located next to the Mekong Delta, and we stayed at a homestay
  • Watching a cooking demonstration of Banh Xeo
  • With limited wifi and electronics, we went old school and played card games at night – the girls played Queen Bitch (a mixture of two games I already knew – Big 2 and President), while the boys gambled with toothpicks
  • Spending the morning at the Mekong Delta floating markets
    • Selling drinks, pho, fruit, salt, rice, etc. – all on a boat!
    • They tie up their boat to yours for the exchange, and once the transaction is complete, they untie and continue onwards
    • Vietnamese iced coffee and coconuts
