These lovely ladies took care of us during our visit to the pagoda at Wat Luu Cu II village. They were adorable.Of the photos I took during my visit to the Mekong Delta, here are a few that capture the spirit of our adventures. Lots more to come over the next few days.
The remains of babies killed in a mass slaughter of the villagers at Ba Chuc. The Khmer Rouge killed over 3,000 villagers in 1978 and their remains are kept in a stupa in the village.
We encountered many Uncle Ho impersonators along the way. This one hams it up with Tim's sunglasses.
We found this pagoda, Wat Tanya, by chance. Not only did it have this smart young novice but the best colony of nesting herons that I've ever seen. It was a remarkable place.
