I arrived back in Hanoi from Mai Chau yesterday afternoon. I’m still going through most of my images, but here are a few quiet and verdant landscape shots from the drive there and back. The first hour and a half out of the capital is pretty terrible, but after that the road opens up into the mountains and valleys of northwestern Vietnam and life in general gets to be pretty damn OK.
It was nice to get away. I’ll be posting more over the next few days. Farmers, sunsets, swimming and more.
