I went home during Spring Break and happened to come across the couple in my small town that is from Vietnam. I told them about our trip and Eric gave me some “advice” that Tina promptly told me to forget. Haha. Tina is from Nha Trang and Eric did not tell me where he is from. But he did tell me that fruit is something that I should try in Vietnam. He said to try durians, rambutans, and jack fruit.
Durians look like spiky oblong fruits:
Rambutans look like fuzzy little balls. Almost like sea urchins:
Jack fruit sort of look like Osage oranges, if you know what those are:
Side note: Eric said not to let the smell of the durian keep you from trying it!
