This week: Mai Son, Vietnam
Trekking in northern Vietnam is one of the most memorable things I’ve done in one of my favourite Southeast Asian countries: the fantastic homestays who served us dinner by candlelight and loved spending the evenings singing with us, swimming in lakes after hot sweaty hikes and walking for hours with nothing but the breathtaking scenery to keep us company. I captured this shot on a hike in the Mai Son District, and I loved two things about it; a) this lady was out taking her water buffalo for a walk b) the way she just sat there, looking out over the rice fields, on the surface calm, but who knows what she’s thinking?
