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.

        I am sure. People everywhere can be extremely pushy.
