As part of my Fall 2005 semester with the School for International Training (now known as SIT Study Abroad) I visited Đồng Tháp Province in southern Vietnam. From this province comes a famous saying in Vietnamese:
Tháp Mười đẹp nhất bông sen,
Việt Nam đẹp nhất có tên Bác Hồ.
The saying in English is as follows:
The most beautiful thing of Thap Muoi is the lotus,
The most beautiful thing of Vietnam is Uncle Ho
