Pic du Jour: Seamstress and Clothes Vendor, Sapa, Vietnam

The daily travel photo returns to the recent Vietnam theme today with this portrait of a woman in the central market in the northern highlands city of Sapa who sold me a cheap pair of pants I’ll probably never wear. At least I haven’t yet. But this portrait does however hang in my living room/office.

Today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 774th straight, was taken in Sapa, Vietnam, on 20 October 2010.

      She was very nice, understated. Not nearly as aggressive as most of the others.

    It’s always good to contribute to a local economy!
