This morning we ventured to Cai Be to a family run candy factory who use coconuts as a main ingredient. Nothing goes to waste, the refuse is used for fuel and then the ashes for fertilizer. On the way back we stopped at the obligatory Catholic Church. After lunch the launch took us to Sa Dec and a Cao Dai temple. This is a religion that incorporates facets from most major religions and a few minors including Buddhism, Tao, Animist, Islam, Hindu, Catholicism, and Confucianism. Their building reflected images from all. Finished the excursion with a visit to the house in the movie "A Lover's Story".
Thinh provided a thorough history lesson and explained the country's evolution to its current political and economic state. Finished the day watching the movie "Two Brothers".
