This morning we drove into the countryside to the banks of the gentle Yen River. Little boats took us about an hour downstream, then we hiked to some incredible pagodas on the hillside to see the birthplace of a Buddhist goddess. We were surrounded by Vietnamese people making a pilgrimage to burn fake money for their ancestors in the spirit world. It was an incredible thing to see! Along the way I stopped to have my fortune told by an ancient palm reader. (He said some really exciting things about my future!)
If my fortune comes true I will be back here next year. Vietnam is one of the most wonderful places I have ever visited. The beauty of this country is overwhelming. The people are wonderful. Everything is a bargain. And the guys at
Purple Dragon have done a fantastic job of planning this "adventure in paradise."
Why don't you come with me next time?
Another postcard for you!
