Award Shortlist   


The Bahnar or Ba Na are another ethnic ethnic group living primarily in the Central Highlands as well as in the coastal provinces of Bnh Định and Ph Yn. They speak their own language, keep their own traditional calendar, are animists and worship trees such as the banyan and ficus.

Today upload should more pleasant to look at than yesterdays. Children in Vietnam are wonderful. Everywhere I went they greeted me with a very friendly hello! or whats your name?. When I told them I was French (phap) they became very curious and were ready to learn a few words. They were really good and quick.

In all the villages the children were playing, riding bikes, running around like happy kids. They were very natural and loved to see their photos on the camera screen. Many asked to have their photo taken so I had no problem pointing the camera at them.

The children on the photos are from the village of Kon Chori near Kon Tum.

Your comments are always anticipated and welcomeD. Thank you for having a look. Have a good start of the week,
