Travel Theme: Kumquat, an Orange Fruit from Vietnam

We got a couple of kumquats as a going away present from our cooking class, and man, the first one was so sour we left the other one as a gift for the maid!

We stopped at a kumquat orchard on the bike tour included on our cooking class. They look like small shiny oranges.
