The connection to this food blog is that this place does showcase they way village life was in the past including the raising of crops and production of food. The town has been mostly kept as it was before modernization and it allows a visitor get a feel for historic Vietnam.
Of course I always look for food related pictures but I do want to showcase a few of my shots of this old village.

Production of 'Wine' in the village

Turns out it was actually rice moonshine; I bought a bottle of red and one of white and ended up only having a sip of both as the stuff was strong.
|Stopped for tea too, could have had a quick smoke from the metal pipe too if I was so inclined|
|Tried a different tea made of a leaf that is picked from a tree once a year. The leaf on the glass was an example given by the lady that owned the place. Tasty tea.|
