Paintball - Re-enact the Conflict“Unlock your gun. Everyone listen to me. Một, hai, ba, GO!”
One of the fastest growing sports in Vietnam is paintball! The young, the old, uncles and grandmothers all dress in military fatigues, put on a mask and shoot at each other for 10 minutes at a time. I love paintball and love it even more when there is a local Vietnamese shouting at me over the loud speakers. His words? I don't know, my Vietnamese is sub-par at best. Did he just say, "Don't shoot the chicken?"
Thuds ring out as balls hit the old rusted oil drums and paintballs wiz by as your advisory adjusts her aim. It’s only a matter of time until you get splattered in the face by one of Grandma Nguyen's calculated shots. Remember your training, unlock your gun, don't shoot the chicken and have a blast!
