Mekong - Photo Essay Part 2

As promised, here are some more pics of the Mekong:

What comes after lunch? Dessert, of course! After lunch they took us to a place that makes coconut candy. This is a pic of a guy doing just that. First step: heat coconut, butter, and sugar in a pan. The woman next to us said "Well, it can't be that bad for you, it's all-natural." Yes, just keep telling yourself that.

Then they wrap the candies in rice paper and package them up. We were suckers and bought a package of candy.

We were also suckers and took a shot of coconut wine. No pics of our faces after the shot, but let's just say it didn't taste good.

Once we'd gorged ourselves on coconut candy (which honestly didn't take long because the stuff was so rich), we got on smaller boats which would take us on the winding canals that branch off of the Mekong.

More views of the canal boats.

View to the bow: this is the woman who paddled us down the canal.

Tom held the camera up and took a picture towards the stern. Something tells me the woman behind him didn't know he was taking a picture.

We passed several boats along the canal.

Some villagers standing on a bridge, watching the tourists watch them.

Yay, Mekong!

No problem! Since I'm plenty of time now (my foot is temporaly disabled) I will translate it all for you. I'm going to start where I stop to write in english (Esse tipo de coisa..):
"This is the kind of thing that make blogs interesting. They describes their trip to Asia in their posts, including several great photos. Must see!"
It was really short, but the amazing picture speaks for itself. (:
