Vietnam: people

March 7th, 2011 at 06:36 am

I figured to make things easy that I'd split my pictures up into big units people, crops and markets, vistas and cities, temples.

Hanoi: they mean it when they talk about sidewalk cafes.

Hanoi: two Imperial crowns. Not sure if the Emperor of Vietnam traded them off or one was worn every day and the other formal. Smile FYI this was definitely a surreptitious picture. Museum setting on the camera!

On the way to Halong Bay: a farmer with a water buffalo, plow, and yoke. Yet to be planted rice paddies in the background.

Hue: Bun and oven guy heading home.

Hue: Dad and baby in a scooter. Scooters were everywhere and would come up within inches of the side of the bus.

Saigon: Im available for weddings and bar mitvehs! Smile Turns out that Sunday morning in the park by city hall is a popular wedding picture setting.

Cu Chi Tunnels are a historical park for the Vietnamese, serving much the same purpose as Gettysburg might in the States. A Vietnamese park ranger demos how to get into a tunnel. Tunnel entrance is rectangular - you have to raise your arms so your shoulders clear, and you need to turn your head so it clears.

Can Tho floating market: The pho lady comes to you.
