Hanoi Street Vendors

Ballad of Hanoi Street Vendors

They are up before the sun rises,
carrying, peddling, offering their goods for sale;

they are almost all ladies, no surprises,
they are the famous Hanoi street vendors, and it's not a fairy-tale!

Pineapples, tapioca, oranges & potatoes,
Baquette, flowers, toys & mangoes;
we salute these hardworking & resourceful ladies,
plodding day & nite, just to make some Dong to feed their "babies"!

Hanoi Trip:
1 May to 4 May 2009

Beautiful pictures Jeff. Hope to one day travel with my children. That would be a priceless education.
