Ben Tre in the Mekong Delta

Today was another exciting day.  We left our hotel in Ho Chi Minh City at about 8:00 am and headed toward the Mekong Delta.  We stopped in Ben Tre and took a boat ride on the Mekong and visited a couple of islands.

The coconuts are plentiful in the Delta, and we all had a chance to drink some coconut milk.

Some of the students bought traditional conical hats for sun protection.

And all of this was just the first half of the day!
