a black and white trip to Vietnam

the harbor

I visited Vietnam for the Lunar New year last week. I visited Ha Long Bay and an area called Tam Coc. Here are a few black and white photos I snapped there.

There were lots of local shops and people walking around on the streets.

happy new years at the water puppet show

I saw a water puppet show, but most other attractions (like the “Getting a New Visa at the Embassy” attraction) were closed for the new year. I learned to say “Happy New Year” in Vietnamese and used it as my catch-all phrase for any situation.

I sneaked into the train station and walked around with my camera. I was on the tracks and got honked at when a train engine came through. I dramatically dove out of the way, but he was really only going about one mile per hour and checking out the line switches.
