The Ancient Vietnamese VillageJanuary 16 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C
Yesterday we drove to a Vietnamese village that was built in the 16th century. We visited the communal house, dedicated to ‘Tang Huan Lan’ the deceased saint of the village. We also walked around and saw lots of traditional ancient Vietnamese houses, with some cool doors. Then we went into a house courtyard, which was also a restaurant and my parents and I had a very big lunch of rice 🍚, spring rolls 🌯, pumpkin and green bean soup 🍜, chicken 🍗 and mushrooms 🍄, roasted peanuts 🥜, sausage stuffed tomatoes 🍅, and more (for Dale and Malcolm, lunch was orange Fanta 🍹, plain rice 🍚, and peanut butter sandwiches 🥪 🥜). At the restaurant, there was a shed filled with old stuff, but there were also four tiny kittens and two adult cats! 🐈🐈🐈🐈🐈🐈
Then we all rode bikes 🚲 with Thomas (our tour guide), down to a wet rice field. It was extra wet when we got there because it was raining most of the day 🌧. Malcolm and Geoff both planted some rice plants 🌱 in the mud. Then we biked around the Vietnamese countryside, finished back at the restaurant, and drove back to the hotel.
