Gongs and Poets

While the driver was asking directions in Nam Phuoc, I got out and browsed through the shop of a local foundry. Lots of really beautiful gongs, bells, and other cast metal items. I especially liked the little statue of Nguyen Trai (shown below), the famed Vietnamese poet and general who helped Emperor Le Loi defeat the Chinese Ming dynasty in the 13th century.
