Waiting for the Lunch Rush, Hanoi

Anyone who’s worked in the food service industry will appreciate this calm before the proverbial storm.

I like quite a bit about this image: the bright blue ‘childrens’ chairs, the woman yawning, the confident matron reading her paper, the bit of calm in an otherwise frenetic city. And the memory it provides of a fantastic lunch.

The finest street food on the planet? In my experience in 53 countries, nothing tops Vietnam. That proclamation doesn’t, however, mean that my research is anywhere close to being concluded.

Today’s Pic du Jour, the 237th (!!) straight, was snapped in Hanoi on 18 October 2010. Please click on the image to see the full uncropped version.
