watery wednesday: boats and tourists


Great that my friend Choon Ming takes his lovely wife to places for holidays. The conical hats worn by the Vietnamese boat rowers.

In my ESOL lessons, when I draw a Chinese person, I draw a stick figure with a conical hat.

When my late son Andrew was in hospital, his eldest sister D drew Andrew wearing a conical hat and told everybody that Andrew was a Chinese baby.

Thank you Choon Ming for this photo.

What a nice way to spend the day, riding in a canoe with friends. I always enjoy seeing some of the sights from your world.

Beautiful photo for Watery Wednesday, Ann... Looks like a wonderful thing to do --especially on a hot, summer day!!!!

Do they still really wear hats like that, or is it only to amuse the tourists?

This pic reminded me of my trip to Ho Chi Minh.. we were being rowed to an island and I was imagining all kinds of scenes.. like a big crocodile suddenly appearing from nowhere hit the boat and all were thrown into the river.. no life jackets whatsoever.. not a swimmer myself, sure first to perish! hahaha...
gosh..sorry for commenting this..
