Photographer's Note

This location--Hoan Kiem Lake in the center of Hanoi, with Thap Rua pagoda on an island in the middle--has appeared on TE before, but the shores of the lake are such a lively place that there is always another aspect to depict. Here a young couple do exercises at 6:00 am, joining others who do martial arts, traditional fan dances or modern aerobics, some in large groups and some alone, scattered along the walking path around the lake. The Vietnamese tend to be early risers, so at 6:00 am, not only the lakeshore but also the parks, the public badminton courts and the outdoor spaces in general are already crowded.
