Chau Doc – Tet Trip

Last Tet, I took a trip to Chau Doc with a former colleague of mine from Indochina Capital.  This trip is memorable in that originally we were supposed to go to Tay Ninh (He thought we wanted to go to Tay An Pagoda) and visit Nui Ba Den. Somehow the driver got confused and when we found ourselves outside My Tho, we realized the mistake. Oh well, we decided to head to Chau Doc which was located on the Cambodian border. It ended up being an interesting one day trip. It was a nice pilgrimage to get our prayers in for the Year of the Pig.
