Photographer's Note

No, he's not blinking an eye, his left eye is just closed, permenently. Another thing that's permanent is the smile! I stayed 3 days in Hoi An and every time I passed by him, he waved me with this huge smile in his face.

This man is so nice. He used to be a fisherman on the Thu Bon, but growing old, he realized he could earn just as much money by just being nice to tourists. So, now he spends his days in this clean outfit, in his wooden boat (that you can see bottom left), smiling, taking passengers on his boat to go down the river and back and he tells stories the best he can (his english is probably just as good as my vietnamese).

In the background are the same boats that you can see in the previous post.

Hoi An is a small town and he's a bit of a celebrity there. You can find pictures of him pretty much anywhere on the web when searching for Hoi An. You can see him here, here
and here. I wished he had his conical hat on ;D

cheers!
