Natural arch ~ Halong Bay, Vietnam
Nov 28 2001

As the outcroppings and islands support no agriculture, the sea is the main source of sustenance for the Vietnamese who live in this beautiful area. Not only do hundreds of boats ply between the rocks gathering nets and traps, in some of the quieter bays houses are built onto anchored platforms and entire lives are lived on the water. Shortens the morning commute immensely.
