While they were sleeping

Taken in Danang and Hoi Ann, Central Vietnam

The vietnamese start their day rather early, around 4am, all of them would be out to work at 5am. They take their siesta around noon-ish before working again in the afternoon. Most finish work around 5pm and nightlife is practically dead after 10pm. At noon, most of the stall owners seem to be sleeping.

While they are sleeping

The quintessential Vietnam conicial hats.

While she was sleeping

The store owner sells ‘Hell paper money’. A strange Chinese Taoist ritual that involves burning these paper money and ornaments for the dead. It seems the living prefer to burn fake American dollars as offerings to their dead.

And the dogs were sleeping

And even the dogs were sleeping.
