Located in Northwest Vietnam, Sapa was once a hill station established during the French colonial period in 1922. It now serves as Vietnam’s premier trekking hub.

On my trek to a homestay at the Ta Van village where we would be hosted by members of the Zay tribe, we stopped at a viewpoint and I photographed this little girl.

I hope this was “close enough” for you Mr. Capa!

Check back for more of my adventures in Vietnam!

Happy Travels!
