After an early start to visit the Dong Van market we took the hour or so drive to Meo Vac for breakfast ( a bowl of Pho) and then on to a local village of the Dzao Ao Dai minority tribe. We wanted to see this tribe as the women wear very a stunning dark outfit but when we arrived at the village the women were still at the market and only a few men remained like the gentleman I have uploaded here. He and his wife are the local tailors for the surrounding villages, the gentleman was working away with only the light from a small barred window to the left, the rest of the room was pretty dark, to help lift what little light there was, newspaper was pasted on the walls behind to reflex the light.

Thanks as always for looking and everyones comments and UA's on the previous uploads of this series.
