CFFC: Things People Grow

Ten years ago, I had the opportunity to travel to Vietnam to visit my grandmother and other relatives for the first time. These photos were taken in the Sapa Mountains located in the Lo Cai region. I’m also responding to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Grow

First, let me introduce you to the Dao who are native to the mountains. They were pretty excited to see us. They eagerly showed us their craft collection of handmade goods.

Many squash are grown on a trellis. I love these squash. I would cook these with spinach and shrimp in a chicken broth to make soup for chilly days.

One of the Dao ladies pointed this building out to me. She said missionaries came out to this region, built a wooden school, and now teach English to the young students.
