Some time earlier this year, imperfection from msnguyen.wordpress.com, who grew up in Vung Tau in her childhood, requested me to take a picture of her school if I’m ever nearby. I did pass by the area a few times, but for once, I did manage to explore the area further. The entrance to this school is facing a narrow alleyway, so I’m not sure if it is the same school that Imperfection went to (based on Google Maps, it seems to be the only school here).
If it isn’t, then I’ll have to try harder next time.
When I was there, a group of children and their teacher were having a rehearsal of some sorts, while some girls were playing some rope game on the grounds.

Downpour on Landing
It was threatening to rain when we touched down at Tan Son Nhat Airport in HCMC. In fact, in the horizon, it’s already pouring.
You can literally see the water pouring down from the sky in a patch of dark grey.
This is my first time linking photos directly from my Google Plus albums. It’s not as straightforward as using Flickr, but it will save me from needing to upload into multiple places.

The big pipe is usually made of metal and smoked by men as far as I can observe.
Coincidentally, a storm was brewing due to a nearby typhoon on my second day to Sapa, Northern Vietnam.
Nonetheless, we still embark on our trek to the mountain valley. Along the way, we pass by the market with its sellers braced for the storm. Here, worry is etched on her face as she watches over her goods.
