Photographer's Note

H N鬷. Old Quarter. One of the most lively and unusual places. I'll be back this autumn and this time I'll spend one week in this amazing city.
In the 13th Century H N鬷's 36 guilds established themselves here, each taking a different street - hence the original name '36 streets', but I think there are now more than 50 streets. I learned that 'hang' means merchandise and followed by the name of the product, you can easily know what to buy; Hang Dan - wooden bowls, Hang Bo - baskets, Han Chai - bottles, Hang Dau - beans or oils, etc. etc.
But what I loved are the trees along all the streets and no matter if it's busy, narrow streets, traffic, merchandise, homes, doesn't matter, the trees are there, impressive. When you come out of the old quarter you are in the Hoam Kien Lake, the heart, the centre of H N鬷.
