When I went to Vietnam this summer, I traveled as a part of a larger group from Norway , and that was a very fine trip. But on one of the last days I just felt like doing some exploring on my own.
I found a lovely Picture on a local postcard, and I wanted to find out where it was taken. It showed a couple of woman standing on a bridge of some sorts. I found the bridge , and it looked something like this.
After asking in the lobby of my hotel I found that the bell boy had a brother that lived in that village, and he could arrange a driver to take me there. I had a very good time getting to walk around with the locals taking images. And even if it is a poor country village in a small island in Vietnam, I have to say that It is one of the more interesting places that I have had the pleasure of taking images of.
This was the general feel of the village.
And as you can see, fishing was the primary Activity in the village.
Take care – Ray
Todays image is from the Hoi An and shows a little maritime scene from a the village. I found the village quite relaxed.
I think I might have shown this image before, but I think we can bear seeing it another time. This is a local Vietnamese fisherman using throwing nets to catch its fish.
This shows a little part of the harbour in Hoi An in the central of Vietnam. The boats serves for fishing, and transport of goods and people across the river.
Todays image is from Phu Quoc, and it shows a small fishing viallages. It was early in the day, and the fisherman was busy maintaining there boats and other fishing gear.
Fishing is a large part of Vietnamese history and culture, this images was taken in a fishing village outside Phu Quoc island that is between Vietnam and Cambodia.
It looks like they are trying to bring the boat of the reef.
I found this little brigde in a small village at Phu Quoc in Vietnam today. I guess it have been used for a plattform for the local fisherman to get to there boats. But I have to admit, it did not look all that safe today…..
I was visiting a fishing village in Phu Quoc yesterday, and even if the weather was not all that good, it was a very nice experience.
Here you see the boats ouside the village.
The birds was naturally Close too the abundant waters….
But you also had the harsh reality of beeing in a developing country, this old lady was selling clams as she walked in the water
Last I wanted to show you a little bit more of the view from the harbour
This local Fisherman was doing some old style Vietnamese Fishing With throving net outside Hoi An in Vietnam
I was visiting the western parts of Norway this weekend. And I just wanted to share a little typical image from this part of Norway. Sunny weather, quiet ocean and small boats that people are enjoying with relaxing and fishing.
