Day 025 : Halong Bay

This morning I woke up early for a mystical boat ride through the foggy waters of Halong Bay. The boat was headed to Cat Ba Island where I would hop on a bicycle to check out some of the local villages on the Island.

Many of the homes on the island made use of the natural materials in the landscape. The most striking was the use of straw and earth brick. Throughout my travels I have also become more and more drawn to the ways in which people create architecture to their relatively primitive uses of water for cleansing various things like the body, produce, objects, etc.

I couldn't help but capture this texture.
