just realised I never fulfilled my promise to show you pictures from Vietnam. We were looking at them wistfully at the weekend so I'm just quickly going to show you the beautiful necklace we bought because if anyone you know is travelling to Hoi An in Vietnam they should visit this shop. Its called Reaching Out and is easy to find at 103 Nguyen Thai Hoc. All the beautiful Crafts there are made by people with disabilities so by buying goods there you are helping to support these artists who are wonderfully talented. Like all Eastern countries you can buy copies of almost anything in the markets but I found the work there to be original and skilfully crafted, like this necklace whose design is based on both the Lanterns the town is famed for and the Lotus Blossom, a symbol of purity in Budhist religions.
