VIETNAM 2013 #70

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
A woman deep in her thought on her boat which is also a market stall.

V2 and V3 were taken in another pat of the market and show a woman selling field mice. Amazingly, in the Mekong Delta, field-mice have become a specialty. I hasten to add I did not try any dishes with mice. Iím sure itís a delicacy but not for me!

She shows a resigned patience: no takers for her field mice despite their being a delicacy!!!

V1 is a beauty.
I hope the rats aren't to be eaten, but I'm afraid they are.....I hesitate to think what the pliers are for....

The study of the lady in V1 is excellent. As for the field mice - don't think I'd be trying these.Sad I did read the link Jean-Noel but afraid they're not for me!

Mmm, not my idea of a delicacy either.. they're bigger than a lot of rats.

White Chocolate Mice most certainly, but Field Mice, no thanks. Another three great images from this superb Vietnam series JN.

That Lady looks a bit pensive and thoughtful Jean-Noel. I do hope she had a rewarding day at the market.GrinGrin
