The Red and the Black (potw #25)

I’ve rather pretentiously named this post after a nineteenth century French novel, which I haven’t read.  But I like the red and the black of her shirt, and the way it almost matches the background, so ‘the Red and the Black’ it is.  She runs a food stall on the edge of Hanoi’s old quarter.

I was up in Hanoi for a quick visit last weekend, jetsetter that I am, and will be posting a few more pictures soon.
