Photos by Nina Tran (University of Wisconsin- Madison), Student Correspondent CET Vietnam Summer 2019 An interesting activity in Vietnam includes eating different types of foods. One type of food that made it on my list was this crunchy, creepy tarantula. During the spare weekends, we would plan trips to travel to different areas around Southeast Asia. Here is a group of us with our passports crossing the border to Cambodia! Selfie! One of the many adventures that we took included visiting a well-known pagoda called Wat Phnom. At the top of this pagoda, you were able to get a view of the lovely city, Phnom Penh. Hợp is looking fierce holding this snake. In the Mekong, we learned about how snakes are used to make snake wine. Apparently, the more poisonous the snake is, the better the wine will taste. I obviously had to incorporate another green food into my blog again! This time it’s matcha shaved ice cream with a red bean and mochi almond side.This is a Korean dessert called Bingsu, and there are so many flavors to choose from. This is a must try! Hăng wanted to go for a swim in the canal while we waited for our ship to pick us up to take us to our next destination… We were exploring the surrounding roads of Vinh Long, and Olivia posed in front of these beautiful, exotic flowers. We met Bà Năm, a sweet, 82-year-old lady, who spent the last 68 years of her life making rice paper. She showed us how to make a perfect looking rice paper. Trust me, it’s not as easy as it seems. My favorite furry friend that I met. This is Greyt!! He did not cooperate well when we said look at the camera, but that’s okay because he was a sweetie. At the homestay, the owners had a litter of 8 puppies that I adored.
