It’s a Picturepalooza!

Quyet, their translator and Paul, the organizer.

So after no pictures for a long time, Marty found a place where the wi-fi is good enough that he could download some awesome pictures.  First, is their translator, Quyet,  (you can guess which one he is)  just in case you are wondering how they are communicating with the locals. Or maybe not as we are Americans and assume everyone speaks English.  Marty says where they are traveling most people have never seen Westerners (I’m including an Australian in the group). And absolutely no speaks English, except for the little kids that see these big super pale people on bikes and yell the one word they know,  “Hello! Hello!”

Dinner that the translator's friend prepared for the group.

Quyet’s friend, who owns a fish farm, invited the group to a dinner.

There is a custom there of every time the host drinks, everyone drinks. (Apparently some things are universal).  Although there is not so much pressure on the women  to go drink for drink.

Marty, feeling the affects of too much sun and too little sleep just took sips.

Anyway, the dinner looks pretty impressive but when you see what the kitchen looks like– the it looks like a miracle.

No microwave in sight.

Can you believe the dinner came from this kitchen?  With the kitchens in our homes, we have absolutely no reason not to have a dinner party every single day.

Marty says he probably won’t have internet access for the next few days so I am going to put the other pictures up tomorrow.
