The Thrill of the Hunt

March 14, 2014

 

The hunt began in the small alleys of the Ho Chi Minh fabric market.

Vietnam Fabric Market

Through a combination of broken English and body language, we had decided on our fabric.

The Fabric Hunt

Feeling Good about our Vietnamese fabric, we thought we’d be on our way, but then a man with a basket of mysterious food showed up... We realized our Vietnamese fabric hunt was far from over!

Man with Basket

It started with a banana leaf pyramid of rice noodle, with minced pork, quail egg, and salt and pepper.  It was followed by coffee, tea, and exchanging pictures of family.  Before we knew it, 2 hours had passed and with arms full of fabric we said our Cám ơn's and good-byes!

Food & Coffee in hand

Here’s to our Taaluma fabric friends around the world and Feeling Good, because after all it’s Friday!
