We trekked off with a taxi driver to the Tan Binh orphanage. After thirty minutes, we arrived at an elegant compound, with filigreed eave ...
... and imparted the greenhouse technology to the locals and now the success is evident by their export of roses, orchids, lilies and gerberas to Singapore, Taiwan and Cambodia.
