Chau Doc & My An Hung

Jan 09, 2020 - The Jahan

Fish and fruits come to market this morning as we started out in daybreak to experience the bustle of both water- and land-based trading markets. We had the opportunity to tour the colorful town of Chau Doc with yet another staple in local transportation, a front-bearing cycling carriage known as the cyclo. In the afternoon, we surveyed displays of local music and farming operations in the small village of My An Hung. Adventurous guests could taste unfamiliar fruits and climb across a bamboo “monkey bridge.”

Eza grew up outside of Washington, D.C. with parents that encouraged her to explore the United States extensively before adventuring abroad. After completing degrees in environmental science and economics from the University of Virginia she moved into a grass hut on the edge of the Sahara desert in Senegal, West Africa to serve as an environmental education volunteer for the Peace Corps. This experience deeply influenced her perspectives on community, sustainability and hospitality, and fundamentally altered the way she approaches traveling in unfamiliar places.
