A “Touristy” Adventure

My weekly schedule was updated on Tuesday to include a “Tourist” excursion for Thursday.  We, 3 motor cycles and 5 teachers, left at 7:30 for an excursion to a small village and then a ferry boat trip to a small island to visit the home of the Coconut religion – Not an official religion although the founder wanted it to be.

  1. Lovely, Jan!! looks like a good adventure and, maybe because it included some of your Vietnamese colleagues, easier to know you were in the right place, getting the right tour. The temple looks amazing and the tiles! But the food!! wow. Miss you tons and lots of love from us here at School Street.
