I admire women in developing countries. They work so hard without all the luxuries we have in the west. On top of that, they can maintain an appearance of cleanliness and are often demure. The following are photographs I took at Dong Ba Market in Huế.

Some previously published night snaps here. Nice to put them together.

Ha Long Bay: Grey

In 2013, we visited Vietnam and part of that extraordinary country is Ha Long Bay. It rained and rained; we encountered some trickery on the boat we were travelling on as well. Despite all this we still managed to see what a beautiful place Ha Long Bay is.
