A flower farm outside Dalat city limits. This tour was organized around visiting places in the area surrounding Dalat city.
Some of the lush landscape that supports coffee plantations and vegetable farms.

Coffee drying in the sun in various stages.
Weasel coffee aka Kopi Luwak, where beans eaten by the civet (weasel) are collected from the feces. It is thought to taste better with added enzymes from the digestive tract of the civet. I had a cup of the Weasel Mocha for 60,000 dong (US$3). As you see it is 400,000 dong (US$20) for 200 grams.
Raising crickets (yes insects!) for consumption.
The special sauce makes them slightly more palatable, yes, I did eat some.
One of the many pets running around the cricket farm.
They also brew rice wine at the cricket farm.
And roast Weasel coffee as well, here's one fellow biting into a banana.

Today's friendly and helpful guide, Giac, a relocated minority and recent graduate from Dalat University from the Sapa region near Hanoi.
Dinner was garlic fried rice and beef kabobs.
These may look good, but the meat was near inedible...the only food I was unable to eat so far.
