Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban (Hà Nội)

street haircut Viet Nam

Street haircut in Hà Nội, Việt Nam

I’ve never participated in the challenges WordPress gives to its bloggers, but when I saw this week’s photo challenge, I could only think about the way my idea of urban has been altered.

This photo of a frequently seen street haircut in Hà Nội is one of the primary ways I think of urban in Việt Nam, where I traveled this May for a field seminar in travel writing. Notice his ride parked nearby.

I’m also including a video of another major component of urban Việt Nam: the motorcycle. In this case, thousands upon thousands of motorcycles. We were trying to cross a river of bikes in the city of Da Nang after the International Fireworks Competition. Enjoy! Love, Marla
