Paddies, Sapa, Vietnam

High in the mountains of Vietnam, near the border with China, is Sapa.   It’s a growing tourist spot where every square metre of mountain-side is terraced and cultivated to rice.  What’s too steep for terraces is planted to corn, and what’s steeper still, is forest.

Dusk, Halong Bay

Halong Bay;  anyone who visits Vietnam should see Halong Bay, and stay overnight on a junk, as we did.  We sat here, watching the colour of the sky becoming slowly deeper, and the forested limestone pinnacles disappearing into the mist, as one lone fisherman puttered home.  The red sails belonged to another overnight junk.
