Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Nuoc Mam Hung Thanh - Visiting a Famous Fish Sauce Factory

After the Mekong, we made our way to Phu Quoc Island by ferry. We were able (with the usual vietnamese hassle) to bring our bikes on the ferry.

One of the most famous things to do on Phu Quoc is visited the fish sauce factories. One such fish sauce factory is Nuoc Mam Hung Thanh, the largest of Phu Quoc's fish-sauce makers. At first, these very big wooden barrels may make you think you're at a winery, but just breathe in to smell the amazing scent of fish sauce and you'll know otherwise. They actually let you drink some straight from a tap of the barrels, not the best think to take shots of.

wine? no.. fish sauce

fish, fish, water and fish

some more clear than others

hello, salt

cleaning up the vats in between brews must be exhausting.
