Hoi An

Hoi An was an important Chinese settlement during the 17th to 19th centuries, and it has recently been designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO as a well-preserved example of a traditional Southeast Asian trading port. I spent several hours strolling through Hoi An yesterday - in the pouring rain. The insides of the houses are spectacular. The first image shows a writing desk in the study of one of the homes, the second shot frames the view through the split-bamboo partition between rooms, and the final image shows the bonzai pot flora of the courtyard. And to top it all off, the owner of the house served us tea. [NOTE: My wet umbrella was dripping water all over the floor of this nice man's house as I took these pictures].
