Living in the Mekong delta

I am currently working my way through almost 600 pictures from the Mekong delta. The Mekong delta covers a gigantic region and most of the large population (around 17 million people) live at the poverty level. People live mostly in small shacks which are built directly by the many sidearms and channels that form the delta. We travelled the delta on a boat from where you could watch the people living their daily lives - fishing, washing their hair or their kids, eating, sleeping ... In some cases we could literally see into their homes.

Acropolis from Lycabetus

We just came back from Athens, where - once again - we went to the thop of Lycabetus. This is a hill in the center of Athens, north of the Acropolis, which offers in my opinion the most impressive view of Athens. Since I haven't even downloaded the new pictures from my camera here an older view across the city.

To Panyghri

A short time-out from the Vietnam pictures ... Some time ago I submitted a picture to the Lumix award competition, which had the topic 'Visualise music'. Unfortunately, I didn't win anything :( Nevertheless, here is the picture I had submitted. It was taken in the beautiful and bankrupt country of Greece, during a Panyghri - a big religious celebration followed by a night of eating, drinking and dancing - in Ikaria, where we spent our holidays in 2008.
