The Friday Photo #136 – Nice melons in Can Tho

Can Tho floating market melons

In celebration of the fact that in two weeks I’ll be just about to embark on an epic scooter road trip through Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, I present: these melons.

Back in 2010 I woke up at some horrific hour in Can Tho to take a trip on a rickety boat upriver to the famous floating markets.  While I actually found the later parts of the tour more interesting than the markets themselves, there were still a few highlights.

Boats piled so high with produce that they seemed about to sink were commonplace, but not all of them were quite as green as this.  Or, come to think of it, quite as melon-y.

    Great photo! :) I miss watermelons already and still have at least eight months of waiting for the melon-y summer feeling ahead of me here in Europe... So, enjoy them in Vietnam for me, please! :)
