People of North Vietnam

Meticulous Mick

In doing a trek for a few days in the north of Vietnam we stayed in a couple of home stays, eating dinner with the host families. Fortunately our guide acted as translator, though the nods, smiles and waggy fingers  also served us well. Sign language was not so useful in the frequent cuts in the electricity supply. By moving further away from the hill town of Sapa on foot through small paths and tracks we got glimpses of real rural scenes unused to the clicking of cameras. It was so refreshing.

In the first picture below a young girl ties a sheaf in a field next to a track. In the second, a group of three Black Hmong girls dressed in traditional clothes take a break from using their scythes to watch a run-away buffalo go charging down the carefully constructed tiers of paddy terraces.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
