A Tour Around Vietnam



Here are some images from our time in the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam. It was such a beautiful time together as husband and wife, seeing a totally different way of life, meeting wonderful people, experiencing the sights and smells of another country, learning about life in an occupied country living a war-torn existance and the hearing about the effects of violence upon individuals and an entire nation...

(top) Socialist Billboards a dime a dozen, or whatever that cliche is...

A typical tourist shop and a typical palace with war machine relics



(top) How many people you know with a smile like that?
(bottom) There are almost more bikes than people in Vietnam, or so it seems - brillent form of transport for 80million people living in the one country - great for the environment, practical and fun!

The floating Markets in the Mekong Delta (6am...in the morning!). Do kids just follow Kaylene or does Kaylene follow kids?


New religions to learn about...

the remote-ish hill tribes of around Sapa

great places to jump off!

one of my fav pics! Halong Bay.
