So yesterday was Balinese New Year’s Eve.
Instead of partying it up, the Balinese treat it as a day of reflection and meditation. Lights must be kept off, the internet was completely shut down on the island, and no one is allowed to go out.
Foreigners aren’t really expected to follow all the rules and we are free to do as we wish as long as we stay inside our rooms with the blinds shut, so I watched a ton of movies and used the free time to go through my hard drive and organize my photos (something I’ve been meaning to do for years now).
Along the way, I stumbled through a few visual memories of the places in Vietnam that I was lucky enough to visit. These pictures were taken with a crappy camera back in 2016 and they’re honestly nothing special, but I thought it was worth it to share a few of my favorites with you!
This isn’t meant to be a super engaging travel guide to Vietnam, it’s really just a short-but-sweet collection of my impressions of daily life in Vietnam, mostly from La Gi down south.
Pin it for later?
