A few more shots from around the Mekong Delta, Vietnam (Config: Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 28-70mm).

We spent time wandering around an island market … where the fresh fruit is abundant.

Even the durian (smile). Seriously, every traveler must try it at least once.

This woman was making taffy. Coconut taffy. It was amazing when eaten fresh.

To get back to our boat, we took a taxi through a back canal.

Vietnam is a beautiful country.


For the Mt. Batur part of our Bali trip we did not hike the volcano (another time), but we had lunch at the base. It is a beautiful sight.

The view from the restaurant.

Glad we didn’t hike it. We would have gotten soaked. A storm was on the way in.




The rain hit just was we stopped for fruit at this stand.

The colors were spectacular, even under a very grey and growing black sky.

If you are in Bali, make sure that you try all of the different fruits. Some will surprise you and you probably won’t see them again.
