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 this photo down and give it pride of place here as today’s Pic du Jour, the 191st straight (!). I spotted her at the edge of Hanoi’s Old Quarter as she was preparing breakfast for what I assume was her family. It smelled delicious. I’m sure it was, too.
