Meandering along the Mekong – Phong Dien Market, Can Tho, Vietman – Part two

A Word in Your Ear

  Back to our trip along the Mekong.  Our host was a funny lady and cracked jokes all along the way – she was also a bit handy with the bamboo and made many different things out of the strips by plaiting them together    Rings with a stone, bracelets, flowers with hanging crickets from the end – very talented.

The riverside is a fascinating place and we saw all sorts of businesses plying their trade to the boat people – including a dexlux coffin making shop!

 

Next stop on our river trip – the Klongs of the Mekong
