Chopsticks from Saigon

My dad and sister recently took a trip to Vietnam (Saigon, Hue, and Hanoi) and Hong Kong. You can read about it in my dad's blog, Back to Vietnam.


My sister loves taking pictures of food and markets, and she got some great ones at a market in Saigon. But first, my reason for the post. She brought us back a a gorgeous set of chopsticks - I love them!




Now, here are some of the pictures of the market where she purchased our gift -


My dad purchased several of these bowls - aren't they beautiful?






My favorite picture -

Didn't know you did this. The picture with the bamboo bowls have the exact ones I bought -- the red ones on the bottom. In the picture of all the grains, the prices look high but at the time we were there, 17700 Dong was equal to one US Dollar. The bowls - the 3 large ones and 4 smaller round ones were about $22.00
