VIETNAM 2013 #57

Have you ever seen a floating bakery? Here is one!

The people are having a breakfast and eat some French baguettes with some food cooking on the boat. Those people stepped on the little boat in order to eat and have a chat before going back to work.

When the customers have finished eating, the “bakery” moves to other boats.

The “baguette” is one of the many things left over from French colonial times.

The woman in the conical hat on the left hand side is selling bananas. You’ll see more of her soon.

A huge THANK YOU to Jeff Silvers (cats_123 for his User Award).

Floating but not 'all at sea' as things look very well organised, JNC: such an interesting further shot from the floating market and an insight into the lives and daily routines of these traders.
I wouldn't mind one of those conical hats during this heat spellWinkWink.
