Vietnam, Calling All Dentists



060Besides all the cool stuff I am learning about Vietnam by touring the Mekong Delta, I discover I might have at least one thing in common with the Vietnamese people, a weakness for sweets.




As we watch syrup and another sweet being made, our tour guide points out that being a dentist here might not be a bad profession.

This portion of our Mekong Delta tour ends sipping some Jasmine Tea with me have some regrets that I did not have the stomach to try the Medicine Wine. Maybe next time.
