Tungsten Lights

I love going out at night in Vietnam. Especially in the evening to the parks. Everywhere you look is full of life. Teenage dancers practicing, the elderly drinking tea and playing chess, footballers showing off their skills, skateboarders gliding by and lovers holding each other. This scene was not as common as when i first came here. You of course would see many many people doing traditional things like drinking tea, exercising and playing chess, but skateboarders and dancers were not so common.

In a park, it seems like the glow of the tungsten lights lets people relax and enter into this sanctuary of freedom to do whatever they like. In Hanoi it is a special place.
