Hôi An, Việt Nam. 13 January 2015

DSC05693What’s not to love about Hôi An? This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a small, walkable city of shops and restaurants, friendly people, and old-world charm with its mustard yellow buildings interspersed with colorful temples, art galleries and meandering canals. The sales pitch is low-keyed so this is the place to shop. Cooler temperatures make sitting in a cafe over a LaRue Beer, watching the passing boats along the river, the street wagons, and the women with their baskets of bananas, a most pleasurable experience.
