It’s the only part of Vietnam I’ve ever seen, which is something I hope to change soon.
It’s slow bike rides, colorful lanterns, beautiful old houses with yellow walls, a lazy river that encourages a certain slowness in ones movement.
It’s quiet and curious, friendly, graceful, ancient and modern all at once. It’s a beautiful preservation of history, while also bringing it to the forefront of daily life.
It’s a place I loved, and hope to see again.
