discovering vietnam is a uniquely rewarding experience. the joyfulness, elegance, self control, work ethic of its people are a bowl of fresh air. add its street life, cuisine, climate, scenery, history, low cost and safety, and you end up with a travel destination that nears perfection.

but is more than that. it is a mirror to us present day westerners, our contortion and grimness.

I decided to stick around and portray this people. I spent in total seven weeks in the country, in hanoi and central vietnam (hue, danang).
