Some Travels~ Vietnam
I was in a blog bog this morning and decided to put up a few photos from some travels.
I was traveling solo in Vietnam at Christmastime, 2004. Fate and a series of situations beyond my control put me at the South China Sea rather than southern Thailand when the tsunami hit.
At the time I was bewildered and distressed at the inability to change my itinerary. I literally threw my hands up through near hysterical tears at my situation at the time. Just goes to show you....!
Halong Bay, Vietnam
Looks romantic but was really just smoky.
Bridge at the World Heritage Site of Hoi An
The colors !
A vendor on the beach on the South China Sea in Hoi An.
Calm waters here on the day of the tsunami in Thailand.
I put this in for the ewwww! factor but they do fascinate me.
How's this for you stampers? You could pick out any design and have it personalized or give them your own design and pick it up the next day. This was in Hanoi.
There was a different street in Hanoi for each kind of merchandise.
This was on sheet metal street.
On a rowboat trip to the limestone outcroppings.
My Hmong guide in Sapa- Northern Vietnam by the China border.
Local Hmong gals in Sapa with their wares.
My trek guide and her friend. She told me that she was 18 and also that she didn't like wearing the indigo clothing because it made her turn blue.
