Our last AO home visit was two families in a farming community out in Hoa Vang district. We were not far from the Flowers Waterfalls you saw in a previous entry. One of the families had all homemade furniture from materials they had or could grow, including the ubiquitous bamboo (now I'm happy, I got to use the word ubiquitous). The funny part was, he had all of this great handmade stuff around, and a little modern solar light out front.
Vietnamese people can sleep on concrete (seen 'em do it) this is soft by comparison.
Just roll a bamboo mat out on this bad boy and you are ready for some zzzs.
The rice crop is starting to turn. It changes from green to yellow as it ripens. Some fields were being planted as we arrived in January. They get two harvests a year, sometimes three in the Me Kong delta area.
This next group of pictures is all rice paddys.
Next vacation eat rice in beautiful Viet Nam
