Thai Binh province is one of the areas where we have an education sponsorship program. We all love visiting this area as it feels like we are walking into the past. The families in this area are predominately Catholic and they are quite conservative.
We enjoy the scenery as nearly every family in this community farms, so everywhere there is rice growing or rice straw; huge piles or trolley's of it drying out. Recently harvested rice is often drying out on the pavements or in the front yards of the farm houses.
It is an experience of total immersion in a farming community.
