Day 157 - Rainy Evening in the Citadel

It's been another grey and mostly rainy day so I was not hugely inspired for photography but strange enough in the evening when it was raining I felt inspired to go and take some photos in the Citadel.

The local kids were undeterred by the rain and were out having fun biking and rollerblading on the square. They did not mind getting a bit wet or even falling down on their attempts to learn rollerblading.

It was nice to see all the kids having fun and some even came over to practice their English or just say hello.

It is something you don't get very often in the Western countries where kids don't usually just play and have fun together and you don't get such a relaxed atmosphere. This is one of the things I like most about Asia and think its a bit sad that the Western countries seem to have lost the social aspect.


  1. Love the grain in #1, #2 and #6 and #6 is my favorite with the added reflections. You have used the adverse conditions to good advantage, Cristi.

    When are you planning to move on from Vietnam or have you decided to remain there forever? LOL I wouldn't blame you if you did. It certainly has a fascinating appeal and you are capturing the flavor of the country with your photographs.

  2. Thanks for you comment Calvin!

    Glad you like the photos.
    I know have now spent quite a considerable time in Vietnam but managed to get to know the country an people here and gt feel for living here. Hope my next post gives you the answer but it will be time to move on. This could also be a great place for you to explore and maybe spend some time here, it's easy to find jobs here and the country is great.
