I had to include this not only because it was one my most treasured books as a child but because the Vietnamese are not well known for their folklore which is a shame because they have some of the most enchanting tales of doomed love, kings, queens, fairies and farmers.

Found across SE Asia there are two types of water buffalo: those that prefer deep water and those that prefer to wallow in mud swamps. The behaviour is vital for their thermoregulation especially important during the summer. Their diet consists mainly of aquatic plants such as reeds,  bulrush, water hyacinth and marsh grasses.
