A tapestry landscape at the end of the great Mekong river (which carries Himalayan snow across South East Asia to merge with the South China Sea on the south eastern shores of Vietnam).
The puffed rice is a popular treat from the area, very like western toffee popcorn and dormitory room of a stilt house out in the sticks would be our home for the night.
The Bonsai garden outside was an absolute treat to walk round.
There were also many beautiful orchids to be found growing out in the grounds.
A refueling stop on the river brought a smile to my face.
In one of the villages we dropped into a school for a while, as they did not seem to mind.
Then come the markets and boats in this larger town.
Back on the river again although our time here is running out fast.
The port of call is Cai Be, a real market town.
Back on dry land we see the ever popular rice pancakes being prepared.Once cooked (as shown on the left) they are laid out in racks to dry in the sun.

A very beautiful Caodal temple in Mekong Delta.
The Caiodal religion is unique to this region and is a melting pot of ideas and beliefs from other religions and sects.
