Vietnamese Ladies


Old ladies visiting the markets chewing on their beetle nut, lovely smiles of red but genuinely friendly, kids riding to school attempting fate , totally unaware of the dangers by riding 3 and 4 abreast taking very little notice of the truck and buses blowing their horns warning them to clear the road., but , they continue on in groups chatting as school kids do , and hopefully , they'll live another day.

Old ladies riding their antiquated bikes for lots of kilometres loaded with top heavy baskets to store and carry scraps left along side the road, then pedal home to feed their own cows, buffalos pigs or chickens on their own farms.
