Ladies of the Hoi An Central Market
- As I wandered through the aisles of the Hoi An, Vietnam Central Market, I became more intrigued with the ladies who tended the food stales than I did with the variety of foods they offered. They sat on low stools, upturned plastic buckets, rickety plastic chairs and, sometime, just squatted or sat right on the ground. Some were busy deboning fish, plucking freshly killed fowl, stirring a steaming pot of soup, or eating from a bowl of noodles while other just sat smoking a cigarette and chatted with their neighbor. These are some of the photos I took of the ladies of the Hoi An Central Market.
 

My Son Sanctuary -
My Son was once the holiest place of the Campa Kingdom. Fleeing Chinese dominance and in search of an independent state, the Cham settled along the coast of central Vietnam in the latter part of the second century. Between the 4th and the 13th century they dominated the central region of the country and developed a unique culture with spiritual origins in Indian Hinduism. My Son is estimated to be the longest inhabited archaeological site in Indochina and is one of the foremost Hindu temple complexes in Southeast Asia.
