Rice Fields

The Vietnamese - as opposed to many ethnic minorities in the country - are largely a coastal rice-growing people.  The south, which is capable of more crops per year, is the source of the growing commercial agricultural engine but rice cultivation, at least at a subsistance level, is everywhere in Vietnam.

Thuy told us that the Champa people had introduced wet-rice culture into Vietnam.  I observed that meant that, even if their holy place at My Son was largely lost,  the Champa had an enduring legacy all around us.
