Other countries still have plane hijackings.
The largest religions in Vietnam are Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, ancestor worship, and Christianity. The first four are often blended in various combinations. Vietnamese people often enjoy a coconut candy made with coconuts and sugar coated with edible rice paper. When shooting an AK, you have to shoot looking through both holes! The booby traps used by the Vietnamese during the Vietnam War would flip an unsuspecting passer-by and penetrate their bodies.
The French occupiers of Vietnam used terrible torture tools on suspected rebels, an atrocity that the United States actually supported! Religion is highly integrated into Vietnamese culture. Almost every building has a shrine to buddhas, to ancestors, or to the gods, and the opening of new buildings is accompanied by a religious ceremony.
People will sacrifice food, incense, and other goods to these shrines. When silkworms go into their cocoons, silk spinners boil them to extract the silk they release and make very comfortable clothing with their fibers. Lime juice and cane juice are both popular delicacies in Vietnam and Cambodia. Vietnamese and Taiwanese cities pretty much all look the same. Hoi An was one of the biggest trading ports along the silk road and, today, is a popular tourist attraction with all kinds of places to shop for souvenirs, food, clothes, and other goods.
Two popular gods worshiped by the Vietnamese include the Monkey God and the Dog God which literally have the features of a monkey and a dog. When dealing with jet lag, be prepared for it to take a psychological toll, especially if you are prone to fits of anxiety or depression. While I enjoyed my study abroad trip, the nervous breakdown, followed by a week of numb depression, was not fun! Keeping this, and I am thankful that you opened up a door to share a huge wealth of varied information, all of which holds truth and interest and some knew a bit about, but would not have necessarily categorized it here…as I am presently learning more here at HOME!
It reminds me — as if I need to be reminded- to prioritize my passion for travel and other cultures, as well as the peo It reminds me — as if I need to be reminded- to prioritize my passion for travel and other cultures, as well as the people and places I loved. Are you just home? Hoping things settle in, and that soon you will long to return to such foreign lands again! I know that I do when it is right. I agree btw about preparing yourself well. There is so much we take for granted, though we consider ourselves mindful there are always lapses. That was a while ago. Initially, I was gonna list everything I learned over the summer, but, after a while, I realized it was already getting a bit long with the list of stuff I learned in Taiwan, Vietnam, and Cambodia, so I just kept it at that.
I am learning about the beauty of building something with intention and patience. For the first time in a long time I have space to create a garden. Though I am not going to be able to plant and harvest this year, I have been slowly preparing the soil and space with anticipation for next Spring. It feels so good to pour my heart into partnering with the soil and getting to use my imagination to design a beautiful space that can be enjoyed by myself and others.
It is slow work but work that i It is slow work but work that is satisfying to the core. The process has taught me about the importance of trusting that fast production and overnight results do not yield the levels of satisfaction that patient, considerate and slow work can bring. Gardening really has taught me to appreciate nature. I love this, Zoe. I loved our time together outdoors and in her kitchen on those wonderful afternoons when I loved our time together outdoors and in her kitchen on those wonderful afternoons when I spent nights staying with them. Nature indeed brings us so much to be grateful for!
Watching the video should give you enough knowledge to complete this project without further training. You can find the video here: I will also have these materials for sale in my ETSY shop! For this project I am using 2. The finished size of the project is 18" X 60". Begin by ironing the fabric, getting it as flat and even as possible.
The cut edge of the fabric on either end will be finished with wool later. Carefully divide the wool into 8 long bands. Continue to lay out the long horizontal bands, splitting the area in the middle into 3 areas. When you are happy with the layout, add your decorative finishes. In the sample shown, small thin pieces of silk and bamboo roving were spread across the piece.
Tiny wisps of wool were added on top to secure the silk and bamboo roving. Wet out your work, either by covering with tulle and adding cool soapy water, or use the fertilizer sprayer on the finest setting as shown in the photo. You do not have to cover your work if you use the fertilizer sprayer. Rub lightly with a scrunched up plastic bag to make sure the wool is flattened and the water is spread evenly.
