Vietnam - great time

Some photos from the first days in Ho Chi Minh city (mid Feb 2015) https://picasaweb.google.com/104313877083935493139/HoChiMinhHighlights?authuser=0&feat=directlink

From Deej (9:00 am Tuesday 17 Feb. 2015)

We have had a great time here in Vietnam - museums, botanic garden/zoo, temples and pagodas. 

The  AO show at the Opera house was brilliant, great use of baskets, bamboo, and bodies. 

The food is delicious here. We took a cooking class and  learned how to make several dishes and they were very tasty.

Yesterday (Monday, 16 Feb. 2015) was our Mekong Delta speedboat tour - giant fruit bats, swallows nests for eating, crocodiles and beautiful scenery along the rivers. 

It is almost Tet here, spring time festival, cool in the 90s.

We are waiting on ship (Tuesday morning at 8:45 am 17 Feb. 2015) in the river for the tide to turn so we can leave. We are 2.5 hours late so far.

Just when you get used to a place, it is time to leave.

Soon we will be in Singapore for only two days.
