Where to Go in Vietnam

This week we were joined by our very own, Rosemarie Visconti, Children's Librarian, and Jill Vu, Reference Assistant, who took us on a tour of Vietnam with beautiful pictures, fascinating stories, and delicious treats. Rosemarie recounted her recent trip to Vietnam, with stops in Ho Chi Minh City, Hue, and Hanoi, where she painted the picture of a beautiful country filled with welcoming people, bustling cities, serene countrysides, and vivid colors. Photos of palaces, pagodas, state buildings and markets gave us a feel for the architecture and allowed us to see the Chinese and French influences throughout the country. Jill made our experience even richer with samples of food and coffee from Vietnam. Thank you to our wonderful tour guides!
