Day 4 Reflection - 25 May

From today's experience, I've learned that

1) The entire mangrove farm has about 24 different parts/areas. These areas are grouped into these three colours, Green, Blue and White. The Green areas are for people to do research for further development. The
Blue areas are strictly not for cutting down or reclaiming land. Finally, the White areas are the residential area. A picture of the farm split into 24 parts and divided according to their colours is shown below.

2) At the farm, there's a plant that during the season which is around May, they would turn from green to yellow to red. These plants are poisonous and when consumed, one could go blind. A picture of the plant is shown below.

3) The last thing that I've learned from today's experience is the shrimp farm. They earned millions of dong from selling their shrimps. However, they have to make long distances to the city in order to sell their goods. Also, they had to travel in a small boat that uses a motor. So, they had to spend money buying petrol for their boat. A picture of their boat is shown below.
