Tam DaoPosted: October 10, 2012
Here are some pictures from our exile in Tam Dao (the name means “Three Islets”, because there are three mountains in the area.) I called it an exile because this is a resort town mainly for people from Hanoi and surrounding cities, which means that while we were there, there was absolutely no one around except for the locals. We saw a few weekenders on Saturday and we were all like “OMG! People!” I had to tell the locals that Debbi and I were here for research (which isn’t a lie, technically) so they would stop giving us weird looks. The trouble is, we stayed at the guest house of the Institute of Biology, so they all thought we were biologists. I mean, I could pass for a botanist, but Debbi and I both sucked at biology back in high school. Thank God nobody asked any biology-related question, or it would’ve been awkward.
