Behind the scenes at the market


I’ve written before that it sometimes seems as if the women in Vietnam do all the hard work while the men just laze about.  Like most sweeping generalisations, it’s not entirely true – but there is some truth in it, as I think the picture above illustrates.

These pictures were taken in the Mekong delta town of Vinh Long, mostly in a narrow alleyway in between the market and the river where goods – mostly rice – are traded wholesale.

    I visited Hanoi some 10 years back and was struck by the wonderful nature of the people, so beautifully captured in your pictures. Thanks for sharing
