The next time you eat a spring roll or dim sim spare a thought for those who make the wrapping. Millions of spring rolls are consumed in Vietnam and the external wrapping is made from rice. A very thin layer of rice is formed from rice milk and then laid out to dry. Noodles are also made in a similar way. It's hot work but not back breaking.

Rice store beside the river. Washing the pigs. The pigs really appreciate being cooled down. This little piggy will eventually go to market. Making rice paper used as a covering for spring rolls. The factory is a hive of activity. Rice paper drying in the sun. The rice goo is spread out on a heated surface. Rice noodles. Low down in the water. This infant checks out the passing tourists. Mum takes a rest from the heat of the day - a very sensible thing to do. Sprucing up for the afternoon. Coconut boat. Speed boat in Mekong estuary. There is always plenty to see - this is a fascinating tour.
