Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

The AALP class 16 arrived at 12pm local time today February 15th, which is 12 hours ahead of our friends, family, and blog followers in Ontario. The enthusiastic travellers spent 20 hours on the airplane and flew over 14,000 kilometres over Sudbury, the arctic circle, Russia, Japan, Taiwan and finally Vietnam.

Our journey to Asia included a planned layover stop in the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. The Airport had several amenities for all to enjoy, including a yoga lounge, a mechanical horse that allowed Megh to keep up her horse-riding skills, extensive duty free shopping, and luxurious first class lounges. 

Our afternoon city tour of Ho Chi Minh City - formerly known as Saigon - included a trip to the Presidential Palace, which was the intelligence headquarters of the President, his family, and his staff during the Vietnam war. The signing of the end of the Vietnam War took place at this historical site as well.

The buzz of motor bikes zipping through the busy streets will send us into a deep sleep to fight off jet lag and prepare for tomorrow's adventures. Until then....
