Still sleepy

It's 6 in the morning at the floating market, just after sunrise. A little boy on a small boat is still sleepy. Often street vendors take their children on their boats ... perhaps they would prefer to sleep a little longer, perhaps they would prefer to play, because this is what they are supposed to do at that age.

First Time

A young girl on the ferry to the Hon Tre island. On her mother's arms and leaning over the window, she stares fascinated at the sea... probably her first boat trip.

We are on the Mekong River on the border with Cambodia and this is one of the houses of the floating village. Most of the houses are simple shacks built quite randomly like the one you see. A woman prepares the dinner in what is her open sky kitchen, draining the fluids of the meat that cuts, directly into the river. She is probably waiting for her husband to come back from work on his own small boat.

As soon as you leave the downtown and you drive around the outskirts of the city, the scenery will be totally different. The people are relaxing outside their houses, shacks or huts.. the kids play under the surveillance of the elders.

Lady's market

Here we are at a local market in Vietnam. Surely a place always very lively and crowded, with vendors sat everywhere along the street, a constant loud noise and a strong scent.

Go shopping

A classic of the local market scene in Vietnam, customers parked on the roadside for shopping sitting on their scooters and bicycles, loaded with shopping bags, in every way possible. It's always impressive seeing this motorbikes fully loaded, driving around the city... sometimes you almost can't even see the drivers.

Hold my hand

The family plays a very important role in vietnamese people's life. This is a very remarkable attitude but can have also its downsides. Sometimes happen that the children don't have any chance to take their own choices, their own preferences. Everything is decided by the parents for the simple convenience of the family.
