less than 2 months til we go. images of viet nam never far from my mind. a couple of oldies here which made it through the devastating theft:
*left: village men rebuilding a traditional communal house in the central highlands. the tallest bamboo is sought and used whilst still green to allow flexibility for creating the steeply pitched roof.
*right: a tiny orphan- many ethnic minority women die in child-birth leaving husbands without the means or the ability to raise a large clan. i spent half a day at this orphanage, playing with attention-starved kids. we sang & played games. i gave them piggy-back rides & cuddles. i adore this image.
