VIETNAM #201

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Ninh Diem is an interesting place to visit for its salt fields.

Women do the back breaking work of carrying heavy laden baskets full of salt to a big salt mound where where they empty the baskets. Itís a relentless back and forth journey from before sunrise to sunset under the scorching sun.

The men gather the salt into small mounds. It does not seem to be easy either but thy don't carry what seems to be a heavy load.

Youíll more photos of those amazing and courageous women over the next few days/weeks.

I do wonder how many people realise how hard it is to produce sea salt!
An interesting image, Jean-Noel!

These images of yours epitomise a people who's spirit would not, or could not be broken

A fine example is no doubt Dien Bien Phu
