In Vietnamese and Chinese the word for ‘Dragon’ is ‘Long’. It shows up in lots of place names as well as fruits and fish.
Halong Bay: Decending Dragon (beware, dragons below).
Red dragonfish inside an aquarium in our hotel in Saigon.
I first had dragon fruit in Vietnam served alongside with watermelon, a great colour combination. I since seen them in the local Chinese markets labelled with characters that translated as Fire Dragon Fruit.
Sketch of a dragon fruit tree which is a type of flowering orchid cactus. I saw a plantation of them from the bus in Vietnam but didn’t manage to get a photo.
Longan: Dragon Eyes.
They look as if they might have belonged to these googly-eyed dragons at a Royal Tomb in Hue.
(Sorry Jennifer, it appears I had a pent-up pile of dragon posts!)
