Broken china is used to repair the roof finials at Tomb of Tu Duc in Huế, Vietnam.My Son (pronounced meesun), located 69 km southwest of Danang, Vietnam, has been broken by many invaders on many different occasions. The history of My Son is a worthy read, including its modern history, if you feel inclined. Also very much worth a visit if you are in Hoi An. Added for Ailsa’s travel theme
I love Asian food markets. They have a bountiful supply of clean, fresh, and to me, unusual vegetables and produce. This photograph was taken at the DongBa Market in Huế, Vietnam.
True carmine was a little hard to find. I think the Temple of Literature in Hanoi fits the bill.
Ailsa‘s post this week brought back memories of visiting markets when I am travelling. I am not a big visitor; most merchandise being usually of no interest to me. I have taken the odd photograph at these places.
