Today I received this wonderful street scene from Peder Bisbjerg, traveling in Quy Nhon, Vietnam (located about halfway between Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City).
Wait a minute… something looks familiar…
There it is! Mount Hood meets the beaches of Vietnam! Not a lot of volcanoes in Vietnam, proper, but they are just across the South China Sea from a batch of really impressive volcanoes in The Philippines and Malaysia, so the Vietnamese are no strangers to big, solitary peaks that erupt periodically.
According to Peder, he was “eating a delicious eel rice gruel” — and that’s the shop owner smiling in the background. His eel breakfast cost 65 cents.
Thanks for the international publicity, Peder!
