Linh just finished sweeping the street. I wondered how the street looked so neat! The dogs all wander around and share the street space. i love my view. i want to keep drawing right now, but I also want to get to the market early this morning for some vegetables and eggs and tofu and fish. Its not even 8am and I can hear the kids signing at school already. I can see when one has a culture where there are not resourses in abundance why working and paying for a good school is preferable. Smoky strong smells waft.
|the view from the little balcony at Loc Phat Hoi An Homestay was of the neighbours vegetable gardens and their little houses. i would sit for hours and sketch and write and watch their daily life|
