Another weekend and another damp one for us in the UK. Looks like the weather is back to normal now and aren't the nights drawing in quickly now or is it just me?
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my showing of my Vietnam Album last week. So today I thought I would give you another instalment with the next four pages.
We stayed two nights at Hoi An and this really is a beautiful and very old city. This river ran straight through the middle of it and I got to see lots of dragonflies in the evening light. Beautiful.
This Japenese Bridge was a wonderful old footbridge (and the odd cyclist) under which lives a dragon who's tail is in Japan. It is alleged that if the Dragon is happy everything is ok, but if not, Japan gets an earthquake.
There are four monkeys which guard the bridge and the candles are lit all day.
Here we are at 5 am preparing for our first cycle ride of the trip. We cycled to My Son which is a sacred place full of temples and burial places. Unfortunately, during the conflict, it was used as a base for the US Army and was left in a pretty sorry state. However, it still had an air about it of a sacred place and the carvings were spectacular. "Xin Chao" is what children would shout to us when we passed through towns and villages! It means "hello"!
One of our group photos which proved tricky at times as we would wander in all directions, but fun anyway.
I apologise for the reflection of the pages in the album, but the pages are pretty tricky to remove due to all the embellishments.
Thanks for calling by. Please leave a comment so I know you have been. Have a great crafty weekend.
