Ha Mong Tribe

Photography

During Crossing Bridges, we spent a lot of time in the North, all the way to Sapa nearing the Chinese border. In fact, this is probably the northest point of Vietnam.

In the north, the tribe that is famous there is Ha Mong tribe. I presume its native to that part of Vietnam. The following photo shows a lady from Ha Mong tribe which is carrying stuffs up from village to the Sapa town. I presume that the basket must be quite heavy!

The photo below shows an old lady that’s eating some snacks. I cannot remember if those snacks was something that we gave her.

The photo below is another lady that I saw.

It was really a great trip and eye opener for me. I should revisit Sapa at some point of time. I wonder how much developed is the town.

Tokyo Metro

Photography

Tokyo Metro is an integral part of the daily lives of Tokyo inhabitants. Without Tokyo Metro – the whole Tokyo will be in a grid lock. Despite mountains of people walking on the street, the commute between longer distances are done mostly thru Tokyo Metro. I have not taken Tokyo buses before but the Metro is my usual mode of transport whenever I am in Tokyo. The following are collection of my photos during my solo trip in Tokyo this year.
