Street Shave, Nghia Lo, Vietnam (Pic du Jour)

This was taken in Nghia Lo (Nghĩa Lộ), a sleepy town of about 25,000 in Vietnam’s Yen Bai Province. The city’s located about 200 kilometers from Hanoi, which translated into a leisurely seven-hour drive on a two-lane highway the day I made the trip.

I got my first street shave here, too. The headrest is much more comfortable than it looks.


And for the record: today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 806th straight, was taken in Nghia Lo, Vietnam, on 19 October 2010.

    I was just about to ask if you got a street shave too, and read that you did 🙂

    The barber chair looks quite unique. Nice to hear that you got to experience street shave while you’re there. Must be quite an experience (in a good way).
