This photo was taken in the small (yet touristy) village of Sapa in North West Vietnam. It was quite foggy up the top of the mountains but once you get down to the valley visibility is much clearer.
In the foreground of the photo you can see a small crop of indigo plants that the villagers use to dye their clothes with. To the left is a young Black H’mong tribal woman carrying a baby on her back whilst cultivating the land for planting rice in the upcoming wet season. To the right, in the background, you can see a school government building. The government buildings are distinguished by their red rooftops and yellow walls. The rice field steps that loom down the mountain are an amazing sight and really emphasises the Vietnamese’s ability to work extremely hard.
