Vietnam: a photo essay

I can’t find time to post this week which is crazy because I’ve got so many adventures to report on. Some of them are so far in the distant past (November and December!) that I can’t even recall the names of the people in the photos.
To cut through this serious blogging backlog I will photo-blog and you can fill in the witty commentary yourselves. This is way too easy.

    some beautiful pictures. A great sense about the lake and the Temple of Literature, and am curious about some other ones too. Well seen and been!
    No need for commentary with pictures so good! *Particularly* Hoan Kiem Lake, and the Gateway at the Temple of Literature. But I like the series.
