Vietnam Fun

I am somewhat drawn to the ridiculous.  Perhaps that’s why there are several pictures from my summer travels in Vietnam that are delightfully foolish rather than reverent. The experience as a whole may have been one of deep peace, but that does not mean laughter was not a part of it as well.  And that laughter began on the plane on the way there, though I am not certain of the airline.  Malaysia Air perhaps?

Airplane: taste the rainbow.

One of the first places we ate (that was recommended by our hostel) allowed Louise and I to experience the local bird.

Bird bones, bird head

One of the tourist type activities available is to take boat tours through various limestone caves.  However, sometimes the hands get tired of rowing.

Feet row.

And when the rain gets serious, so do the umbrella hats.

The ponchos get pretty serious too.

Louise loves the rain!

And finally, lychees are sometimes called sheep’s eyes.  This is not why.

One eye...

Two eyes...

...and some force-feeding
