Photographer's Note

Happy students wearing the traditional au dai costume celebrate their graduation at the Temple of Literature (Văn Miếu-Quốc Tử Giám), Hanoi, Viet Nam.

As I mentioned in this previous posting, we were at the Temple of Literature on a Sunday, when hundreds of new graduates were there to celebrate their graduation. Most were wearing gowns and mortar boards for the obligatory photographs; many were dressed, as these two, in the traditional "au dai". Maybe they had already had their photo-shoot, and were more comfortable without the extra gown, as it was very hot and humid. I love the expression on the shorter of the two girls: a case of heroine-worship maybe...
