Destination Vietnam by Jeff Cooke

“My adventures in Hue included getting into a motorcycle accident doing a u-turn for a photo of a farmer riding a bull, and having my wallet stolen … not by the guy on the bull, but by a clever pick pocketing system that involved 4 taxi cab drivers.” – Jeff Cooke


As Jeff Cooke mentions in his blog post – turns out, you don’t have to be Rambo to visit the mesmerizing and mysterious country of Vietnam. You do need to gear up with a camera and lots of memory cards, as the culture, history and people are fascinating. If you get a chance to shoot a wedding or two, have a friend who is local and can guide you through all the non-touristy, captivating places – know, you’ve hit Jackpot, even if that experience includes 4 sneaky cab drivers eager to steal your wallet.

And a short video slide show, with a song by Francis Yip – “Green is the Mountain.” A Taiwanese folk song about a mountain range and the people that live in the mountains, which Jeff heard in a cool craft brew bar in Hanoi.
