Hoi An is famous for the beautiful colours and magical feel. The river Ban meanders through Hoi An at no real speed and no sense that it heading to the sea close by, like Vietnam there is no rush.
This lady offered me a ride in her small boat,and at a price that was much less than the larger boats with music. So I sat back and the banks of Hoi An slowly passed by with the yellow plastic chrysanthemums offering a unique view point.
I thought she was going to do a spot of fishing, but no she was after her mid morning snack, disguised as fish bait.
We had no conversation between us. The experience was full of peace and calmness. If my ferryman is like this I will be happy.
Concentration inside the cafe with the cafe owner and a friend, who finally left having won the game.
By the next day I took the chance of a cycle ride on one of the hotels free bikes. I went a little further than most though and had several hard stairs! One of my favourite sights! How many things can you get on your bicycle or motor bike, or how heavy is your burden!
A country lane at last, through the water chestnuts and in the distance a small cruise liner.
A Vegetable plot in the front garden, full of lettuce and other green vegetables.
Later in the week I cycled to Hanh To Pottery. A visit to Hanh To pottery. Fascinated by these little warriors!
I Watched this pot being made, but hadn't spent enough money on a ticket to make a pot. Maybe a good thing!
