A woman making rice paper which will be used as spring roll wraps. She is wearing a Vietcong military hat and the Vietnamese VC uniform, but Americans usually didn't suspect that women were soldiers and were fighting just as strongly against America as the men were.

Traditional Vietnamese snake wine
Traditional Vietnamese snake wine. Snake wine is made by putting the most poisonous things you can find into rice wine and letting the King Cobras, vipers, and or scorpions ferment in the wine for a good long time. Then drink the wine, along with some fresh snake blood if it's available, and you'll be as manly as I became when I drank it. It tastes "snakey" or "froggy" and if drank with blood, the blood is mostly what you'll taste as it coagulates on your lips.
