The vegetable village

What to do? Asked the receptionist and she suggested “why not go and see where the local herbs and vegetables are grown, its only a 50,000 dong ($2.50) taxi ride away”. So that’s what we did. Jumped in a cab and got him to take us there promising to return to pick us up in an hour and a half at 12.30.

The pictures below are worth a thousand  of my words so enjoy the pics we took as we wandered (As Wombats do) amongst the herb and vegetable plots.

I hope you find as we do that this sort of interaction gives an insight to the way others live and provide for their families. This is not a tourist attraction but real life and  right in  the middle of the fields was home with a cooking school. How they make a living beats us.

So we spent and hour and a half looking around, having a cold coke in the roadside stall, sitting on the roadside bargaining with two girls on pushbikes who were selling pop up cards. Bought a couple at a bargain price (we think) whilst we waited for our 12.30 cab to pick us up.. You guessed it.. he never showed up!!

About Willie Wombat

Wombats come from Tasmania which is the island state at the bottom end of Australia. We enjoy traveling and try to do a bit before we get too old to enjoy it anymore. We are currently both (Mr. & Mrs. Wombat) in our seventies so the time must come soon to pull up the armchairs and footstools and settle down to life on our 17 acre property 30 klm from Hobart which is the capital of Tasmania.
