Such a lot of talent in our host! He was a wonderfull man who showed us how to make the natural speakers using bamboo. It was amazing to see the craft and its discovery is absolutely fascinating. We cut, sawed, carved and tuned our own bamboo speakers. My boyfriend made one design, and I made another. It was such a great thing to take from Vietnam. We really enjoyed interacting with our host, a young passionate man who also makes bamboo bicycles himself! Also, our translator was very friendly and speaks English very well. We will be taking more activities with Backstreet Academy when we head to Hanoi next week!
