We had a chance to bike through the Delta but we opted for motorbikes instead. I think it was a good choice–even on motorbikes it was a hot and tiring trip! (You might be wondering how sitting on the back of a motorbike could be “tiring.” Much of the tour was on very bumpy dirt paths and even as a passenger you have to remain pretty focused on the road.)
We stopped by a local home where they make rice crackers flavored with sesame seeds and coconut milk. They were making a bunch in preparation for the Tet holiday. They make both a crisp kind but also one that is sort of like a crepe. They let us try both–delicious!
We stopped for lunch during the tour. We had fried fish, mango-papaya salad (one of my favorites!), green beans, and stuffed tomatoes. We had a bunch of other stuff too–when we all eat together the amount of food they serve is overwhelming. We’ve never gotten close to finishing it.
