Sidewalk breakfast, Hanoi, Vietnam

Breakfast With a Smile, Hanoi

The vivid memory of this woman’s smile greeted me when I woke up this morning. I have no idea what provoked it but I didn’t fight it. There are worse images that can clutter a mind when one starts the day. The recollection left me no choice but to hunt …
