Photographer's Note

We just got back from a month in Vietnam, a country that is really special to us. My wife and I lived in Can Tho in the Mekong Delta from 1999 to 2001. This is the second time we went back (with our daughter). With so many wonderful people we know overthere, Vietnam and Can Tho in particular feels like a home away from home to us.

This is a rough outline of our trip:

1. about a week in Can Tho, meeting so many old friends, catching up on life and plans
2. doing the touristy bit, visiting Hoi An and Hue, seeing how things have changed
3. relaxing in Hanoi, a city we've always liked a lot
4. travelling up north to the remote beauty of Ha Giang province to see how the hill cultures are doing

You can expect lots more pictures later. For now, things are pretty hectic here, so I won't have lots of time to post pictures or review yours. More will follow.

Consider this an appetizer.


This picture was shot in a small Hmong village in Ha Giang in the far north of Vietnam. The Vietnam T-shirts that so many kids up there were wearing, were a present they got from the government after finishing the school year.
