Scenes from a van

Mr Huan drove at speed through the mountains in northern Vietnam so I was unable to photograph most of this, but these are some tiny glimpses of life as they flashed past us on the road:

  • Naked children waving from doorways
  • Wedding celebrations in a tiny village
  • Live pigs and calves strapped to the back of motorbikes on the way to/from market
  • Someone slitting a duck’s throat over a bucket
  • Small children carrying heavy loads
  • Teenagers hanging out
  • Mountainside labourers
  • Pool tables in open village homes
  • Rice field irrigation systems
  • Tiny old ladies carrying heavy bundles of wood
  • Sheets of corn kernels drying in the sun
