Day 2 - Mekong Delta
Today I went on my first of 3 tours in Ho Chi Minh city. I thought I was going to do the city tour but instead it was the Mekong Delta tour. Man it was a great day and I met some great people too! I started the day with my "free" hotel breakfast of a pretty decent bowl of wonton noodles. Like for reals it was not that bad... I got in a van and we headed off...the Mekong Delta is about 2 hours outside of HCM so it takes some time to get out there. Here is our guide giving us the details of the day. then we were on the river... first stop on the island was a bee farm with the freshest and crazy good tasting honey ever. I had to try it... oh man this tea tasted so good with the honey another big deal is the snake wine not too bad as a snake handler right? We then headed for some tropical fruit tasting all from that area... The fruit inside One of the folk singers that came by to sing for us: then we went to row in a banana boat! and our lovely lady boat rower.... it was pretty crazy on the river... After that we got to have luncb: After that we took a small bike ride through the village and got to see the real rural lifestyle. ;;;;;;;;;;;;; it was a great day...so I wanted to have something nice to eat and I saw this BBQ place across the street from my hotel adn wanted to give it a try: SOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! Great end to a great day! Shout out to the "Naruto" guys from as well as the Filipino Family from Cebo!!
