Vietnam - Can Tho "Boat" Cruise (Take 1)

After many travel complications upon leaving our  home stay, we were forced to get another cab to Can Tho. 

If its not a full family of 4 crammed on a scooter its an obscene amount of miscellaneous "baggage." This was by far the most ridiculous "carry on" that I spotted.

Once we got settled in Can Tho we met local "tour guide" Ms. Loi.  

Even though we couldn't communicate at all with Ms. Loi, she did win us over with her palm leaf crafts.

It was crazy to see some of the living accommodations...

...lucky for Andrea, she had the opportunity to get up close and personal with a very understanding family.

...not once, but twice. 

"Whenever you need to feel like a lady again, just put your crown on."

As beautiful as some of these pictures came out, this area of the Mekong River was probably the most filthy to cruise through.

Our Queen, waving to her fans.

This boat ride was quite an eye opener. It definitely made me very thankful for all I have and realize all the things I could do without.
