Country of the Week ~ Vietnam

The Presidential Palace, in Hanoi, is a beautiful yellow that seems to be a theme in Vietnam.

The An Dinh à Hué palace in Hue, Thura Thien-Hue, also yellow, is even more ornate.

A sitting room at Bao Dai's villa carries the yellow theme indoors.

Hoi An Ancient Town is South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century. I love the street lamps in the second picture.

This picture of a yellow-painted tea house and embroidery factory with a woman dressed in yellow is gorgeous.

Perhaps the young woman from the tea house picture is the same woman in this wonderful shadow shot against a yellow wall.

We even find yellow in tile,

Vietnam looks like a lovely, warm country. I'm glad I have Giraffe #161 to wear so I'll fit right in.
