hanoi

my friendly cyclo driver in Hanoi. he learned english from a book, and it was a lot better than the few vietnamese phrases i learned from my routledge tapes. normally i don't take pictures of people as 'souvenirs', but he was one of the nicest people i met in vietnam.


beautiful bougainvillea spilling from a balcony near the Dong Xuan market.


supermarkets are so comforting somehow.

Hi Erica, are you writing your dissertation on Vietnam? I'm Vietnamese so I thought it was interesting that you tagged it with dissertation and Vietnam. I'm planning on doing work on Vietnam in both literature and the visual arts in my PhD program at UPenn. I know dissertations can be a touchy subject, but this is really interesting.
