Hue, Vietnam, taken on December 27, 2015

A review of my past photos reveals some rather interesting shots that I had forgotten about, some candid and unintentional, like this one. I must have quickly snapped this photo of two ladies on a motorcycle in Vietnam as I was passing by, without noticing the expression on the face of the lady in the back. Captions, anyone?

Huế, Vietnam, taken on December 27, 2015

A year ago I was in Huế, Vietnam, where my friend and I got (more than) slightly lost in a local area and had a difficult time spotting a taxi. We walked through the streets without knowing where we were going, but at least the sun was shining brightly and accompanying us on our search for the way! (See the original photo in colour.)

Huế, Vietnam, taken on December 28, 2015

In the imperial palace in Huế, Vietnam, one of my favourite features were the red elements in one of the temples, whether it’s the columns, roofs, lanterns, or doors. The entire felt so extravagant, yet so full of silence and serenity at the same time.

Hue, Vietnam, taken on December 27, 2015

It is pretty amazing that while many languages use the same letters of the alphabet, different combinations of letters – or the same combinations – mean such different things. Vietnamese is particularly intriguing to me because while it is an Asian language, it uses the Latin alphabet (with a few exceptions and modifications) but is a hybrid language that contains elements of many cultures, like those of France and China. I saw this board, presumably part of an elementary school, when I was passing by a rural area in the city of Hue in Vietnam. I gotta say…they learn some pretty complicated words. “To be ruthless”? “To imbue”? (I don’t even know what that means.) “To be manufactured with skill”? Not gonna lie, but I’m impressed. One thing though – please tell me what “to be life shortening” means…???

Hue, Vietnam, taken on December 28, 2015

My favourite thing about the majestic royal palace in Hue, Vietnam are these colourful gateways that are lined up along a corridor. Signs of age adorn them but they are still so beautiful.
