An autumnal Hoan Kiem Lake

These are photographs I took of Hoan Kiem lake during the beautiful weather we had at the beginning of December. Sadly, I now have not seen the sun in three weeks, although Hoan Kiem looks equally dramatic in the mist and rain. It’s always a lovely spot to have a stroll and people watch – both Vietnamese and tourists alike. The Vietnamese often walk their dogs here in the evenings.
