Vietnam Exploration continued with a day trip just outside the big city of Ho Chi Minh to a little farming town called Long An. As luck had it again, another friend of the Two Peas was also in Vietnam and invited the Peas to join him on an outing to see the rice fields and possibly partake in some REAL local cuisine; RATS!!! (Not the big rats we think of most, but rather smaller field mice, nonetheless, rats!!) The family that resides there is a friend to the Two Peas friend and gracefully took them all in for drinks, food and more drinks. Unfortunately, the gang had arrived a bit too late to witness the picturesque scenery of the rice fields in bloom as it was not the season. Fortunately though, since there was no rice to be harvested, there were no rats to be feasted upon! THANK GOODNESS. Pea Anabelle was now able to relax and enjoy the day. Everybody left with bellies full of fresh fish, chicken, rice, and Bo Kho, not to mention plenty of adult beverages. Even though the gang did not get to see the beautiful rice fields, they did see some farm animals raised for food and some raised for sport!! It was a wonderful trip to the country to witness a small farming town in action.
